A loan of $425 helped to buy a water pump.

Filemon's story

Filemón is from the city of Curuguaty and he’s the representative for the Fortuna B° 12 de junio neighborhood water commission. They currently have 17 subscribers to the potable water service; by means of great effort and sacrifice they succeeded in installing a tank in said location.

The commission he works in is very unified. In addition to paying the monthly quotas for water utilization they also carry out fund-raising activities to earn more money to cover extra expenses that arise occasionally.

The water pump broke and this is why he’s asking for this loan in order to buy a new water pump for water distribution that will make it possible to continue working helping consumers and the community.
