Our impact in Indonesia
Water.org introduced WaterCredit in Indonesia in 2014. Since then, we have opened an office in Jakarta, hired staff and launched local partnerships with fourteen microfinance institutions. We continue to expand our presence by pursuing partnerships with different types of organizations, including partnerships with associations and rural banks.
Water.org sees great potential to scale up our impact by collaborating with water utilities in both rural and urban areas. Community-based organizations are responsible for providing water and sanitation services to rural communities. We develop their operations and financial viability, and help them secure loans to improve services and support expansion to reach more people with water connections. We are also working with urban water utilities to improve their credit services for poor customers’ water connections, and to access commercial capital to expand service coverage with new water infrastructure.
