ABSTRACT: In 2009, CCODE introduced a special portfolio for sanitation loans to its urban poor revolving fund that could enable households to construct ecological sanitation toilets. By December 2014, CCODE had reached more than 30,000 people with improved ecological sanitation toilets at zero-subidy. The success of this financing model relies on community mobilisation and social awareness. The report confirms that financing is a barrier to households that want to improve their sanitation, and that the loan-financing model has enhanced households' opportunities to move up the sanitation ladder. The study also recommends that sanitation funding must be increased.
