Water Credit

Details

WaterCredit uses funds from donors to leverage commercial capital to fund MFI loan portfolios targeted at clients’ water and sanitation home connection needs. These MFIs disburse loans to a community’s self-help group, which then distributes the loan to individual borrowers. Currently Water.org supports a country-wide WaterCredit initiative with four microfinance institutions in both rural and urban areas. The programs provide a variety of water and sanitation products to fit the needs of households such as rainwater harvesting tanks, water connections, shallow wells, pumps, VIP latrines, septic tanks, and biogas toilets.
