The funding is made up of two loans - a $910m facility supported by a partial World Bank guarantee, and $165m backed by France's export credit agency.
The project aims to improve access to drinking water for the capital's over 2 million residents.
The financing will be used for investments in water production, transmission and distribution facilities, including a water treatment plant, storage facilities and new networks, Standard Chartered said in a statement.
