A loan helped to bring in a piped water connection at home.


Amirdham's story

Amirdham’s family lives in a small village of Tiruchirappalli district, Tamil Nadu. Her family is one of thousands impacted by the water crisis in India. They have no water connection in their home. Every day, Amirdham spends her precious productive hours in the morning trekking up and down with heavy water pots from the public tap to her home. Some days, the water she collects is insufficient for her family’s needs.

Amirdham has wanted to change this situation for a long time now. So when Milaap’s partner, Guardian, offered the option of installing a piped water connection in her home, Amirdham was eager to avail of this opportunity. Unable to pay the 14,000 INR cost of installation up front, she seeks a loan for this amount. She will use the hours freed up from fetching water to earn extra money.

Your loan will help Amirdham and her family save their time spent on fetching water, help them be healthy and more productive, and empower them to realize their goals of uplifting themselves.
