Bangladesh OBA Sanitation Microfinance Program

Bangladesh OBA Case Study

This case study is part of a series prepared by the World Bank’s Global Partnership for Results-Based Approaches (GPRBA). The objective is to highlight project components that have enabled GPRBA to successfully deploy Results-Based Finance (RBF) approaches for the provision of basic services to low-income communities, with efficiency, transparency, and accountability. The present analysis is focused on the Output-Based Aid (OBA) Sanitation Microfinance program in Bangladesh.

The project facilitated access to finance for household investment in sanitation through a specialized loan product for poor families. It led to the improvement of the sanitation status of more than 170,000 poor rural households reaching 776,590 beneficiaries.
