The “Alternative Pro-poor Sanitation Solutions in Peru” (APSS) initiative proposes a market approach to sanitation based on the interaction of: a) a demand who gives priority to sanitation, because identifies tangible benefits (e.g. value of their housing investments and their social status), b) a competent, articulated and profitable local-national supply, able to provide an integrated sanitation package (sanitation options, installation and maintenance services, financial facilities and post-purchasing advice and support), c) a micro-credit system which includes financial products for sanitation; and d) key local actors committed to sustainable sanitation management, as well as to the promotion and regulation of this market.
