In 2005 PPIAF financed a study to better understand the challenges faced by Kenyan community-based organizations (CBOs) as they tried to secure marketbased financing for small water operations in peri-urban areas. The study investigated ways of combining capacity building, output-based donor subsidies, and private sector financing to help CBOs expand and improve their water delivery operations. In collaboration with the Water and Sanitation Program (WSP) and the
Global Partnership on Output-Based Aid (GPOBA), the study helped facilitate marketbased infrastructure finance for 21 CBO water providers in rural and peri-urban areas of Kenya. In order to build on the success of this fi rst grant, PPIAF approved a second one in 2008 to help the Kenyan government establish a Project Development Facility to help a much larger group of CBOs prepare capital development plans and apply for investment loans from local micro-finance institutions led by K-Rep Bank.
