MSC developed a strategy to roll out Water.org’s WaterCredit program and identified potential MFIs and WASH NGOs partners. We conducted a macro-level analysis of the Indonesian microfinance and water and sanitation sectors and identified specific geographies for the expansion of WaterCredit services. MSC executed primary research to make suitable recommendations. The research covered clients in the urban, peri-urban, and rural areas of Jakarta, West Java, Central Java, East Java, East Kalimantan, and West Sumatra.
Based on MSC’s recommendations, Water.org launched its WaterCredit program in Indonesia in 2014. The report assisted Water.org to target relevant geographies and financial institutions to kick-start the program. By the end of 2018, over 470,000 WaterCredit loans amounting to USD 18 million were disbursed in Indonesia.
