Developing Microfinance for Sanitation in Tanzania

Results of a phased research initiative on sanitation microfinance

This report presents the findings of a one-year action-research project on sanitation microfinance in Tanzania funded by SHARE. The project took place between December 2013 and January 2015. The project was the culmination of a broader research initiative which investigated how financing for sanitation can be mobilised via the use of microfinance in order to support sustainable access to improved sanitation facilities and/or services.  This report describes the activities carried out under the action-research and extracts emerging lessons on the potential for developing sanitation microfinance through capacity building and networking.
