Financial Inclusion Improves Sanitation & Health (FINISH Mondial)
WHAT IS FINISH
FINISH stands for: Financial Inclusion Improves Sanitation & Health and aims for sanitation for all through an integrated model that addresses both the demand and supply side of the sanitation challenge.
The programme works with a multistakeholder approach which involves the entire value chain. By mobilising the supply side of sanitation while integrating financial resources into the value chain, the programme raises awareness on and creates a demand for sanitation services amongst end-users.
They ensure that:
People are aware of the need for a safe and durable toilet,
People want to buy one and can afford it,
Local people can build one.
Results to date:
Improved sanitation: 1 million toilets were built in India and Kenya
Local business development: more than 10 million work days in construction alone
