Through WaterCredit, we have empowered more than 7 million people across twelve states with access to safe water and sanitation. By partnering with different types of organizations, including microfinance institutions, self-help group federations, housing finance corporations, commercial banks, payment banks, social enterprises and the Government of India, Water.org is mobilizing resources and sharing knowledge to increase access to improved sanitation and safe water.
With your help, we've disbursed more than 1.7 million loans, providing more than $375 million in loans to families in need of safe water and sanitation in India.
