A loan helped to buy a biodigester and convert agricultural waste into renewable resources.


Joseph's story

Joseph lives in Bureti, Kenya with his family. On his farm, he has four cows and ten chickens from which he can get a large amount of manure on a daily basis. When he heard about a biodigester that was fed with manure and that produced biogas he could not believe it, Joseph realized that he can take advantage of the waste from his farm and offer his family many benefits and a better quality of life. One of them is that they will be able to cook their food with the biogas that the biodigester produces and they will stop spending on the purchase of firewood and LP gas. They will be able to take a shower with hot water every day. With the savings he'll get from using the biodigester Sistema Biobolsa, Stephen will be able to invest in his farm and buy more animals and greatly improve the environment.

Joseph's family will also increase his harvest because they will take advantage of the organic fertilizer produced by the biodigestor and will give the soil the necessary nutrients to reforest his land.

This loan represents 66% of the total price of the biodigester; The remaining part was covered by an initial payment in cash and a government subsidy.
