No Clean Toilets?!

How would you feel if you didn’t have access to a clean bathroom? 

Well that is the case for many people.  In fact, 2.4 billion people all over the world are struggling to keep their family alive because there are no sanitary toilets.

Marla, a married women with four kids who runs a candy business in the Philippines, is an example.  She doesn’t have a clean toilet for her family.

In this loan Marla wanted a sanitary toilet for her and her family. She is aware that the toilet will help the environment  and is saving money.

We made this loan because we think that everybody should have a clean toilet. Also, we don’t want people to use the bathroom in places that are unsanitary because it could possibly make a lot of other people sick.

Ecuador Earthquake

Many families in America complain about how bad their roof is,  but how bad would it be if your roof got caved in after an earthquake .

Also, here in America, if your roof got caved in after an earthquake you would get money from your job, but Carlos Eduardo’s store  — who lives in Ecuador — got destroyed by the same earthquake that destroyed his house, so he has no way to make money and no place to live.


We thought this loan was special because people in Ecuador make 79.92% less money than we do in America. We made this loan to help Carlos with his business so when he  starts making money off his business again he can make the money to repair his house.
