WaterCredit: Catalyzing Access to Safe Water and Sanitation

Commitment by

PepsiCo Foundation

PepsiCo Foundation and Water.org are working together to bring more than 250,000 people in India access to clean water and sanitary toilets over three years. To date, PepsiCo Foundation and Water.org's signature WaterCredit program is enabling more than 241,000 people to gain access to safe water and/or sanitation. This goal is being met through a $4.1M investment in programs delivered via grants and WaterCredit, an initiative that facilitates microcredit loans for safe water and improved sanitation access. PepsiCo Foundation's contributions have supported Water.org and its partners to demonstrate the ground-breaking WaterCredit model with quantifiable results and impacts. This performance has set the stage for Water.org and PepsiCo to further scale up investments and outreach via the WaterCredit model over the next five years in India and beyond.
