This final report summarizes the iDE grant study approach, conclusions and recommendations for organizations seeking to leverage local sanitation entrepreneurs. The iDE grant carried out research to explore the role that women play in the sanitation value chain in Nepal, and how these roles may impact key behaviors such as latrine purchase and use. The research team carried out surveys of households that purchased a latrine from an iDE-trained sales agent and focus group discussions with sales agents to understand the attitudes, competencies, and execution strategies employed to promote latrine purchase and use.
