Scaling Up Blended Financing of Water and Sanitation Investments in Kenya

Publication Year


This PPP case demonstrates how OBA enabled the government to channel private funding for a development priority.  Community-based organizations grew into PPPs with fully commercial business models for delivering water in poor rural areas. A Kenyan micro finance bank provided loans, where part of the principal was paid by GPOBA once the service proved functional and part of credit default risk was guaranteed by USAID.

This note looks at a series of interventions undertaken by the Government of Kenya (GoK), with support from the World Bank and other development partners, to improve access to commercial finance in the water and sanitation sector.
