We took a risk, launching our first Guarantee Fund programme more than 20 years ago. We have been building on that success to develop new financing vehicles for the development sector.
We show commercial investors where there is untapped opportunity in overlooked sectors such as sanitation and waste management. We are proving to the world that there is an investment case to be made in sectors previously perceived as risky.
We integrate financial inclusion as a key aspect of our programmes to ensure households and small businesses can access financing. We ensure local financial institutions see the value in lending for sanitation, waste, and linked sectors, to build sustainability.
