Indonesia's Water Crisis

Water.org began working in Indonesia in 2013 and has since partnered with four microfinance institutions to provide water and sanitation loans. Water.org sees great potential for expanding in Indonesia and plans on launching additional partnerships with microfinance institutions in 2015.

The Water & Sanitation Crisis in Indonesia

With 250 million people, Indonesia is the fourth most populated country in the world and hosts Southeast Asia’s biggest economy. However, for many Indonesians water sources are distant, contaminated, or expensive, and private sanitation facilities are unaffordable without financing. More than 37 million Indonesians lack access to safe water, and 102 million lack access to improved sanitation facilities.
