Investment Financing Facility (IFF)
Financing of Tanzanian urban water utilities (UWSSAs) is mostly based on grants. As UWSSAs increase their revenue generation, more utilities become eligible to commercial loans. To this effect, the Ministry of Water (MoW) and KfW established an Investment Financing Facility (IFF). GFA assisted UWSSAs in the preparation of investment project proposals and loan applications, and supported MoW in managing the IFF. Participating banks were solicited in establishing capacities to develop loan products.
