More information about this loan
This loan is part of MUK's biogas pilot program, designed to finance construction and installation of biogas digesters that convert livestock waste into fuel for stoves and electricity. These units help farmers save money that they would otherwise spend on energy, and offer sanitary disposal mechanisms for waste. The digestion process also produces organic fertilizers as a byproduct, providing a low-cost alternative to expensive chemical fertilizers. These loans are designed to help farmers repay with the funds they save.
