A loan helped a member to purchase TerraClear water filters so they can have access to safe drinking water.


Pangsalao Group's story

Sikeo understands the difference the water filter can make for his family and for his group’s families. Sikeo knows that local water sources require boiling before consumption and boiling water consumes natural and financial resources. The water filter Sikeo purchased will increase his family’s disposable income by substantially decreasing money spent to buy charcoal or decreasing the time and cost foraging for firewood. The filter also eliminates the need to purchase bottled water if it is available.

Sikeo is excited that the filter was purchased on an affordable payment schedule and the filter is guaranteed for four years – so he and his group can continue to receive the many benefits of clean water for many months to come.
