June 13th: Bonus Day

Sanitary conditions before...
Sanitary conditions before...

Dear supporters,

We just quickly wanted to let you know that June 13th is a Bonus Day - this means that donations to our project will be matched by additional 50% on this day. This makes your donation even more effective and helps us to reach out to even more families every day.

Meanwhile, our project keeps going ahead, changing the project area one family at the time. For example the family of Pastora Perez, who is dedicated to pig breeding. Pastora Perez approached our micro-finance partner because her water and sanitary installation were in a dire state and she wanted to change this. After forming a group with four more neighbours, she was able to access a credit of 1,000 dollars in order to install a water tank and to improve her toilet. Within a short time, her living conditions have changed completely: not only can the whole family now take a shower and drink clean water, but having an improved toilet also means that they have recovered some dignity. Sometimes, this is just as important as the services provided by the project. Pastora Perez is very satisfied with her investment, because the water tanks allows her to save a lot of time which she now can dedicate to more productive activities than carrying water.

Please feel free to give us feedback about the project and this report. What kind of information would you like to receive? If you think this is an important project, please pass on the word to friends and family. And why not make a small donation on June 13th and take advantage of the unique opportunity that someone else will add 50% of your donation? We are thankful for every donation, no matter the amount.

Best regards from the whole project team,

... and after the micro-credit project
