Leveraging impact investing
Water.org established WaterEquity to harness the power of impact investing to provide more funding for water and sanitation loans. By investing in water and sanitation enterprises, WaterEquity mobilizes capital to accelerate our impact — so we can reach more people, faster.
WaterEquity is the first-ever impact investment manager dedicated to ending the global water crisis.
WaterEquity's funds invest in a portfolio of water and sanitation enterprises to increase the availability and affordability of the capital needed to support life-changing loans.
More capital means more life-changing loans
There is an increasing demand for water and sanitation loans. Our solution is sustainable, and in partnership with financial institutions across 13 countries, we are reaching the people that need it most. These institutions need more, affordable capital to scale their loan portfolios and meet the increasing demand. WaterEquity provides that capital.
Here’s how it works:
- Accredited investors invest in WaterEquity's funds.
- WaterEquity funds deploy capital to enterprises including microfinance institutions, increasing access to water and sanitation solutions for people in need.
- The investor gets a moderate return or may re-invest to further their social impact.
- The result is more people get access to safe water and sanitation, turning a life of poverty into a life of possibility.
