In 2014, Water.org expanded WaterCredit to the Philippines with the support of the Caterpillar Foundation and Swiss Re Foundation. We now work with ten different microfinance institutions, providing philanthropic and technical support to build their capacity to provide a variety of water and sanitation solutions in urban and rural communities. From 2015 to 2017, partners conducted research, trained staff, designed their loan products and executed lending pilots.
We are expanding our partnerships, and by the end of 2018, we aim to reach more than two million people with safe water and sanitation. In addition, we are developing innovative approaches to working with municipal water utilities and developing new toilet models, so even more low-income Filipinos can enjoy safe water and the dignity of a toilet.
