Uganda Microfinance Limited and Centenary Bank are offering financial solutions to the urban poor in Kampala to purchase and install toilets.
“The project will be implemented in partnership with Crestanks and Poly Fibre, private companies that produce and distribute plastic toilets”.
“The two-year pilot phase of the project is estimated to cost sh480m. Of this, sh240m was contributed by GTZ, while the private companies contributed sh120m each. Crestanks and Polyfibre will set up demonstration units on use of the toilet facilities in six pilot parishes in Kampala”.
