Our impact in Peru
Launched in 2013, Water.org’s five-year WaterCredit program in Peru prioritizes regions that have a strong financial institution presence and high demand for water and sanitation improvements. With lending that began in June 2015, we are helping financial institutions develop products best suited for local demand. Our partners began to scale their portfolios in 2016.
Water.org’s partners have a strong presence nationwide, but especially in Lima, the northern coast and the southern highlands. We estimate that our partners will disburse loans for indoor bathrooms, water and sewerage connections, improved sanitary installations and tanks for water collection and storage, reaching even more people in Peru with access to improved water and sanitation by 2018.
