Get in on the ground floor

Janki holding a water container

For a mother of four, access to a water connection would mean so much more than a safe drink – it would help her earn more money and improve her family's home.

Together, Janki and her husband make just enough money to send their four children to school and make a few modest, but vital improvements to their house. Though they have the funds to add another room and cover their dirt floors with concrete, they lack one necessary ingredient – water. A household tap would change everything.

Water.org created WaterCredit to empower women like Janki by helping them access small, affordable loans that enable them to install household water connections and toilets.

In fact, 93% of WaterCredit loans go to women, helping them take the lead in finding and funding solutions to the water crisis in their community.


Give to Water.org and help turn a dirt floor into the foundation of a family's health, happiness and future success.
