In El Salvador, 1.8 million people do not have access to piped water and must rely on unsafe or expensive alternatives. Azure Source Capital (Azure), a new Mercy Partnership Fund investee, is expanding access to safe water and sanitation services for the country’s underserved communities. Azure started its work in El Salvador where two out of every three rural and small urban water systems require major improvements to provide water services to all residents. Azure’s model provides financing for water and sanitation infrastructure as well as technical support and engineering services to rural water service providers and communities. Azure strives to work with local partners to improve service for 325,000 people over the next five years. View this short video to see how important Azure’s services can be to a community.
