Mr Joshua Kibet
Joshua Kibet is the WASH Finance Manager for Aqua for All in Kenya.
Joshua has 18 years of experience in finance and enterprise development in Water and Sanitation, Renewable Energy and Agriculture sectors in Kenya and East Africa. He holds an MSc in Financial Economics. At Aqua for All, he is responsible for upstream work in WASH sector in-country; which includes initiating programmes and partnerships, coordinating blended finance structures with local financial providers, and managing relationships with partners such as government agencies, banks and SMEs.
Joshua provides specialized project finance advisory services to innovative finance programs designed by donors or DFIs to unlock private finance for small and medium–sized infrastructure projects for WASH. As a consultant for the World Bank’s Water and Sanitation Program (WSP-Africa) and the global programme on output-based aid, he was involved in the implementation of the first results-based infrastructure finance lending program for community water schemes in partnership with a local bank in Kenya.
His recent work for the USAID funded KIWASH program in Kenya, involved the designing of a micro-finance program for rural sanitation enterprises to support the construction of improved toilets in post-ODF communities. Joshua has also provided advice to governments and government agencies in the preparation and structuring of innovative finance initiatives. He supported the Government of Uganda in assessing the feasibility and conceptualising an output financing program for solar-powered rural schemes in small towns and this work resulted in similar initiatives in Tanzania.
