The objectives of the case study are to investigate how household financing for sanitation can be mobilised via microfinance institutions, community banks and mass market commercial banks in order to accelerate sustainable access to sanitation facilities and/or services.
The research conducted in Tanzania is exploratory in nature. It seeks to map out the existing provision of microfinance for sanitation, to identify where opportunities for future market development lie and to identify how the development of such a market could be fostered (through the targeted use of public funds or regulatory changes for example). The case study in Tanzania will feed into broader research about how donors can channel financing
for water and sanitation to small-scale actors.
