Chicken Combo

Toilets + safe drinking water are the ultimate combo when it comes to improving health and home. This mom in Kenya took a WaterCredit loan to install pit toilets at her home. Because her water connection is piped in, there is no danger of contamination from the new toilets. Easy access to plentiful water and private, nearby toilets means she can spend her time raising chickens, working in the garden, and managing her home.
