Lia’s story

Lia lives in Kepanjen, Malang Regency on Java Island in Indonesia, one of the most populous places in the world.

In Indonesia, like in many other developing nations, you need to treat water before you can drink it. For that reason, most inhabitants of Indonesia boil the water before they drink it. Or, if they have the money, they buy bottled water.

Lia attended a meeting by Nazava’s sales team about alternative household water treatment options. There she learnt about Nazava Water Filters. Nazava Water Filters filter well, rain, and city water so it becomes safe to drink without boiling, without using fuel or electricity

Lia, who fulfills a leading function in her neighborhood, seized the opportunity and became the sales representative of Nazava in her area. This is the second time she has applied for a loan.

This loan will allow her to buy 200 filters and sell them on consignment to her community, making safe drinking water available to 1000 people. 

This loan is special because:

It helps get water filters to remote communities.

About Nazava Water Filters:

Nazava Water Filters is a for-profit social enterprise that sells affordable and safe household water filters in Indonesia. Kiva loans will enable resellers to purchase more goods at one time so that they can scale faster and save on shipping costs. This lowers filter prices for end users and optimizes income for resellers, who receive loans at 0% interest and can choose whether to repay on a weekly, bi-monthly or monthly basis.

Nazava Water Filters joined Kiva through our Experimental Partnership Program, and has therefore received a lighter level of due diligence. Accordingly, loans associated with this partner carry a higher level of risk than typical Kiva loans.

A loan of $3,525 helps to purchase 200 water purifiers to sell to her fellow villagers, providing them with safe drinking water.
