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.
