A loan of $2,000 helped to expand water filter sales and increase the access to safe and affordable drinking water in four districts on West Kalimantan, Indonesia.


Tara's story

Tara is a 22 year old university student in his 8th semester living in Pontianak, West Kalimantan, Indonesia. He is pursuing a degree in information technology and pays for his studies by selling Nazava water filters. This Kiva loan will help Tara to get enough stock to sell Nazava Water filters to 4 different districts in the state of West Kalimantan.
Many rural villagers in West Kalimantan have the financial means to buy low cost Nazava filters but lack sufficient access to them. Tara will be setting up demonstrations on rural markets in multiple villages to raise product awareness and sell the water filters. A Kiva loan for Tara truly means a win-win situation for Tara and the communities that buy them: Villagers get clean, affordable drinking water, and Tara makes enough money to continue his university studies.
