Sanitation Solutions Group

$300,000 investment  |  Additional support on marketing, financial management, and management information

Sanitation Solutions Group (SSG) is a Ugandan-based social enterprise that aims to scale up improved sanitation by providing affordable products and services to low- and middle-income households.

SSG provides latrine emptying services to households, guaranteeing safe transport and disposal of waste into the city waste treatment facilities in Kampala. This business model is especially suitable for congested urban slum areas that are inaccessible by exhauster trucks and so provides a critical service for a market not currently served by government or the private sector.

SSG currently has five emptying teams, with plans to grow to ten – with each team comprising two staff members working towards monthly emptying targets. SSG coordinates the emptying teams and provides extensive marketing support to generate customer demand.

The Foundation is supporting SSG’s current business plan.
