A loan of $2,000 helped to grow his water filter business and be a role model for other local entrepreneurs.

Meteda's story

Mr. Meteda is a committed salesman who lives on the northern shore of Papua. Papua is one of the most remote islands of Indonesia and is the scene of a long lasting armed unrest.

Safe drinking water is hard to get in Papua, therefore Meteda is proudly selling Nazava water filters that turn well and rain water into water that is safe to drink. By selling Nazava Water Filters, Meteda earns an additional 100 dollars per month while at the same time providing clean drinking water to many of his community members.

Most trade in Papua is done by migrants from other parts of Indonesia. Meteda, who is a native Papuan, sees it as his duty to show his fellow Papuans that they can also become successful businessmen. Meteda can be found in local markets around his hometown, Sentani, promoting Nazava Water Filters.

Meteda wants to expand to more local markets, plus begin doing demonstrations at local offices. Meteda will use this loan to buy more Nazava water filters on credit. Because Meteda lives more than 3000 kilometres away from the Nazava warehouse it is very important to have enough stock.
