Financing and supply chain collaboration
Financing and supply chain collaboration.
With more than 60 active partners globally, Water.org takes an individualistic approach with each partnership design and implementation.
In addition each supply chain often has sub-components such as raw material providers (cement, sand, etc.)
and input producers (squat pans, doors, rings, etc.).
When a financial organization chooses to partner with a supply chain provider, the relationship can take many forms.
For instance, the financial organization can offer an optional referral service for customers who receive a water and sanitation loan.
Households are also offered a turn-key option which allows them to rely on a pre-qualified vendor for much of their solution.
By partnering with Svadha, households can receive the benefits of access to affordable products, authentic quality, product variety to accommodate different preferences and physical requirements, convenience, customization, access to accurate knowledge, and sustained support such as toilet insurance to protect a household’s investment from accidents and disasters.
If the need arises, Svadha also provides services to financial organizations that can include community engagement, micro business establishment and other holistic water and sanitation lending support services.
While some financial lenders may be uncertain about partnering with a water and sanitation service provider, Water.org has helped facilitate and underwrite several successful partnerships.
