Project Description
<p style="text-align: justify;">According to the bank document, as of 2015, 2.1 billion people (29% of the global population)&nbsp;lacked access to safely managed drinking water and 4.5 billion&nbsp;people (61%) lacked properly managed sanitation.&nbsp;In response&nbsp;to the need for a commercially sustainable solution to the global&nbsp;water and sanitation challenge, DWM companies will aggregate&nbsp;and deploy up to $100 million in social investment capital to&nbsp;inclusive financial institutions (&ldquo;IFINs&rdquo;) to scale up their water&nbsp;and sanitation and/or expand their loan portfolios for women&rsquo;s&nbsp;economic empowerment. The proceeds are expected to finance&nbsp;10-15 IFINs in developing countries.&nbsp;OPIC will lend up to $40&nbsp;million to the microfinance investment vehicle to be created for&nbsp;this purpose that will be professionally managed by DWM.&nbsp;</p>
