We support innovative Swiss water and sanitation businesses. Our portfolio companies receive an interest-free loan and other assistance. They collaborate with local partners in low and lower middle-income countries. Their goal is to service under- or unserved customers in rural areas.
To qualify, the companies go through a rigorous screening and evaluation process (â†’ selection process). Once they are in our portfolio, we accompany them until they have reimbursed their loan.
We fund portfolio companies up to 50% of their total business costs (â†’Â standard conditions). This share tends to decrease as they are able to mobilize additional funds from other sources (â†’ results).
