High above the banana farms and rice paddies, Martina and her family call the dusty roads and rural hills of Peru home. She and her husband dreamed of financing a water tap and toilet, knowing it would be a valuable investment in their family's health and time.
Water.org created WaterCredit to help families like Martina's get access small, affordable loans for basic household water connections and toilets. It's a smart way for the world's poor to get access to the basic necessities we often take for granted.
With the project complete, Martina said, "To have water and a bathroom in our home is a beautiful thing for my children...for their health, and safety, and privacy."
Your donations to Water.org have helped expand the reach of WaterCredit, making life-changing loans available to millions of people.
Give to Water.org and give water credit for showing us that a basic bathroom can be a beautiful thing to millions of people like Martina.
