About the course

Micro credit for water supply and sanitation is an innovative application of micro credit to provide loans to small enterprises and households in order to increase access to an improved water source and sanitation in developing countries.

While most investments in water supply and sanitation infrastructure are financed by the public sector, current investment levels are insufficient to achieve universal access or, at the minimum, to reach the Millennium Development Goals related to water supply and sanitation. Micro credits are a complementary or alternative approach to allow the poor to gain access to water supply and sanitation  Funding is either provided to small-scale independent water providers who generate an income stream from selling water or to households in order to finance house connections, plumbing installations in their houses, or various forms of on-site sanitation such as septic tanks or latrines.

Target group: CBOs, NGOs, WASH officers, Business development officers of MFIs, Trainers in WASH
