29 May 2019 , millionth safe sanitation realized

Last week ACTIAM's Director Impact Investing Theo Brouwers was present at the event "Sanitation in the Circular Economy". The millionth safe sanitation was realized via the FINISH program (Financial Inclusion Improves Sanitation and Health).

This program is a collaboration between microfinance institutions, health partners, Dutch government (DGIS) and WASTE. Sanitation loans are provided through microfinance.

A $3 million loan was provided to the Dutch ambassador in India and Cashpor Micro Credit with a dedication clause for sanitation loans via ACTIAM's microfinance fund "AIMF III", to finance 35,000 safe sanitation systems.
