SOIL takes an innovative value-chain approach to solve the sanitation challenge through services specifically designed for dense urban communities, where public health risk is elevated and communicable diseases have the potential to spread rapidly. SOIL’s flagship service, EkoLakay, is a monthly toilet rental service where clients pay a small monthly fee and receive a container-based toilet and regular waste collection services. The collected waste is then safely treated and transformed into rich compost. This project is intended to expand SOIL’s service coverage threefold and double down on efforts to streamline operations in preparation for a results-based financing contract with the Inter-American Development Bank.
