Through the WASH Loans project, the financing from Wing Bank will be utilized to assist communities in constructing or repairing toilets, reservoirs, clean water connections, and wells.

And the agreement signing today allows us to fund the provision of WASH Loan to those in need of safe water and sanitation facilities and improve the well-being of their families,” said H.E.

The partnership between Wing Bank and CAMMA MFI exemplifies the power of collaboration and the potential for financial institutions to drive positive change in communities.
