Purpose

Test and document credit and savings products for water and sanitation

Why We Partnered

This partnership with Water.org expands access to water in Sub-Saharan Africa by accelerating microfinance for the water sector. This program tests and adapts the WaterCredit model in Kenya and Uganda. It also develops and where possible, tests WaterSavings – the first known savings-led product focused on water and sanitation. Based on the roll-out of the products in Kenya and Uganda, Water.org will develop the business case for other MFIs in the region to move into the water and sanitation space. To increase expertise of MFIs and WASH stakeholders, the program deploys educational resources and tool kits, and facilitates cross-sector learning through exchange visits and partner meetings.
