Hamsaveni and Rajesh Send Their Daughters to School

When Hamsaveni and Rajesh took out a small WaterCredit loan to construct a toilet in their home, they knew it would change their daughters' futures.

Now, the time and money they save help them support their daughters, and send them to school every day.

For Rajesh, the goal has always been clear: "When [our daughters] decide what they want to study, we will support them. We want to give them a good education. We wish for them both to have bright futures."
