"Equipment Leasing as a Financing Mechanism for Sustainable Solid Waste and Sanitation
Services in Kampala" by Ivan Katongole,Uganda

MASTER’S PROGRAMME IN URBAN MANAGEMENT AND DEVELOPMENT
(October 2006 – September 2007)

"The motivation for the study was the challenge in the delivery of solid waste and
sanitation services in Kampala city due lack of appropriate equipment by formal and
informal service providers who use very old vehicles for transportation of solid and
liquid wastes to secondary collection points and/or to disposal sites. The main objective of this study was therefore to assess the potential of leasing
equipment as an innovative financing mechanism for sustainable solid waste and
sanitation services in Kampala."

Section 5.5.3 (The potential of leasing according to leasing companies and
equipment suppliers) sums up the focus of the dissertation...

"All respondents from leasing companies and equipment suppliers intimated that
leasing is a financial product with commercial viability and that leasing is
increasingly becoming an attractive financing option in Uganda because it facilitates
SMEs to acquire expensive equipment which they cannot acquire by making cash
down payments. The respondents revealed that one of the best ways to promote the
use of leasing is through unlocking the potential of the solid waste and sanitation
market in Kampala as this would increase the confidence of service providers,
financial institutions and equipment suppliers in the solid waste and sanitation sector
as a commercially viable and worth their investment plans. "

It would be interesting to hear from anyone who has experience of public authorities purchasing sludge trucks (with IFI finance to lease to private operators on a lease contract arrangement.
