TMSS planned to develop and strengthen an improved WASH loan program in collaboration with Water.org to improve the access to safe drinking water and improved sanitation facilities of the backward communities. It allows people in need to access small loans for improved water facilities and sanitation system, empowering them to accelerate change in their own homes and communities- enabling a life of sound health and happiness. It entails working with the borrowers of micro-finance to optimizing the use of scarce public and private resources in water, sanitation and hygiene.
