Benito's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester to turn farm waste into renewable resources.

Benito's story

Benito is worried about the bad impact that chemical fertilizers have on the quality of his crops. Moreover, he is conscious that the fossil fuels are an excessive waste of money that he could invest in its production.

Benito decided to purchase a biodigester that will considerably reduce his carbon footprint, transforming the manure of his 10 pigs into renewable energy and biofertilizer, augmenting considerably higher yields.
Having an organic farm is an added value for selling, as it gives farmers a label of ensuring fresh and healthy products.

This loan represents 59% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
