IDB Lends Mexico USD600M for Rural Water and Sanitation Infrastructure Improvement

The Inter-American Development Bank has approved two loans that aim to improve water and sanitation infrastructure in Mexico’s rural communities. The first loan worth USD350 million will back an initiative that involves a comprehensive program of hygiene education and infrastructure maintenance as well as improvements in physical infrastructure of 20,000 school properties. The second loan of USD250 million will be used to extend the coverage of piped water service to at least 630,000 people and access to a sanitation system for 450,000 people in rural communities with fewer than 10,000 residents.
