2.  Background


Sanitation data released by the Tasikmalaya City Health Office shows that the number of households that still practice open defecation, either directly or indirectly, is still high, reaching 39.58% or 72,067 House Holds (Smart STBM February 2020). Meanwhile, the city government of Tasikmalaya is targeting 100% ODF by 2022. To achieve this target, various strategies are treated in terms of regulations, policies and budgets that are in favor of improving sanitation facilities in the city of Tasikmalaya.


To achieve 100% ODF by 2022, one of the important factors is the existing budget allocation in the city and to align with  required sanitation facilities in  the community. Based on information from Bappelitbangda , the total budget for domestic waste water management  in 2019 is Rp. 5,169,604,000,- . This amount is allocated from the City Budget (APBD) and the Special Allocation Fund (DAK). While total budget required to meet the needs of domestic wastewater facilities in the community estimated at Rp. 288,268,000,000,-. For 2020 and 2021, most of the budget for domestic wastewater management were re-focussing  to  COVID-19 response.


Under such conditions, to achieve 100% ODF target, it need innovation, creativity and collaboration to  find alternative funding resources other than the  city budget.

One of alternative funding resources  is to explore funding mechanism from Microfinance Institutions and Cooperatives and Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs).


According to data from Indonesia, there are approximately 13 Microfinance Institutions that already have WASH financing products for the community. This Microfinance Institution consists of financial institutions aimed for  individual lending and  group lending.


There have been 2,226,059 beneficiaries of this Micro Finance Institution financing product with a percentage of 29% for water financing products, 50% for sanitation financing products, 16% for water and sanitation financing products, 16% for water filter products.

























Number of existing  cooperatives until 2019 in Tasikmalaya City are 624 units consist of Village Unit Cooperatives (KUD), Multi-Business Cooperatives, Islamic Boarding School Cooperatives, Savings and Loans Cooperatives, Consumption Cooperatives, Production Cooperatives, Marketing Cooperatives, Professional Cooperatives, Secondary Cooperatives, Producer Cooperative and Consumer Cooperative. The number  from all existing cooperatives reached 99,662 people who have raised their own capital of Rp. 212.7 billion, and managed to get capital from outside as much as Rp. 148.9 billion. Meanwhile, the business volume of this cooperative is Rp. 255.9 billion with total assets of Rp. 362.7 billion.
























However, out of 624 cooperatives in Tasikmalaya city, there are 296 active  units or (47%) and the remaining 328 unit are inactives. The condition of cooperatives in Tasikmalaya City can be seen in the picture below:
















Meanwhile in the MSMEs (Micro, Small and Medium Enterprises) sector, Tasikmalaya City has 3,490 micro-enterprises, while small-scale enterprises only have 10 business units, as per the following details:





















From the condition, it can be seen that there are quite a lot of Microfinance Institutions, Cooperatives and MSMEs that can be tap as alternative funding for the city. However, it is still necessary to identify and map out their intervention in the domestic waste water management especially financing scheme.  In addition, it is also necessary to see the extent  of potential collaboration that has been rolled out by the relevant dept (Health Dept, Bappelitbangda, UPTD SPALD, Pokja Sanitasi) in financing programs for domestic wastewater management. It is also necessary to identify which Microfinance Institutions have distributed funding for sanitation in the city of Tasikmalaya and the mechanism.
