    The project seeks to sustainably expand demand for and access to rural sanitation technologies through microfinance. It builds on and advances locally feasible, desirable and affordable innovations among marginalized and financially excluded rural households who practice, largely, open defecation. In the long-run, the project aims to attain enhanced sanitation facility coverage, related micro-entrepreneurship and welfare among beneficiaries.
