Funding piped water connections, community water systems and water filters.

Funding piped water connections

Imagine spending 15% of your income for access to water.

That’s the reality for the poorest households in rural as well as semi-urban slums where access to water is close to impossible, thanks to active water mafia. Not just that, lack of clean water causes diarrhea, dysentery and cholera, leading to 90% of the deaths amongst children under five.


Milaap works with on-ground partners to provide small loans to individuals and communities in difficult locations to solve problems of access and distribution of clean water. Our 3 pronged approach includes.
1. Building piped in-house water connections: Potable water is no longer 14kms away, it’s within a home
2. Construction of village-level water systems: Saves time and money, while also ensuring job creation in local communities.
3. Installation of water filters - Children have a reduced risk of contracting water-borne diseases.
