According to the press release dated June 22, 2020 "... the credit will also finance short-term interventions in urban municipalities to mitigate the effects of the Covid-19 pandemic. This will be possible through the supply of water and through subsidies to social tariffs for water service, prioritizing vulnerable groups, underserved populations and low-income consumers."

Boris Weber, the World Bank's resident representative in Honduras, explained that "... This project is expected to help double the hours of continuity of water service for participating providers, which will reduce the difficulties faced by urban residents in their homes."

The $45 million credit from the International Development Association (IDA) has a final maturity of 30 years and a grace period of 5 years, the document explains.
