Water and Microfinance

The Paris Microfinance Network has a good post from last month that I wanted to note:

“An interesting approach, applying microfinance principles, was launched by the organization ‘Water Partners international’ with an initiative called the WaterCredit Initiative that we believe provides a hopeful unique model. By making small loans to communities and individuals who do not have access to traditional credit markets, WaterCredit helps finance the upfront cost of water and sanitation systems…A working example: in India, WaterPartners provided $105K in loans for safe drinking water and household toilet facilities for urban slum residents.” Read the full entry.
