Watch Mariette's video about her experience.

Women are often the worst affected by lack of water, the burden of collecting water often falls to them.Before the tap was installed Mariette struggled up a steep hill to collect water, one time falling while pregnant.

Through the loan scheme Mariette has been able to buy pigs and now plans to buy a cow. As well as giving milk to her children she will also sell some to make an income – both will help improve the prospects for her family.
