Catalyzing WASH : from possible to profitable : an overview

This presentation by Fred Smiet of the Netherlands Ministry of Foreign Affairs, discusses the preliminary findings from a micro-finance project aimed to boost water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services for households and institutions in Ghana.  It was presented at the IRC WASH Debate "Blended finance: Is it all in a mix?" jointly organised with NWP on 4 December 2018 in The Hague, the Netherlands. The five-year project, which started in 2015, is funded by the Netherlands Embassy in Ghana and implemented by SNV and the Fidelity Bank. The main financial instrument is subsidy on interest, lowering rates from 30% to 10-17%, reducing risks for lenders and borrowers. So far a 93% repayment rate has been achieved.
