Total loan: $400


Githunguri, Kiambu County, Kenya / Agriculture

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

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to transform his farm into a sustainable business.

Francis's story

Francis has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk and meat. He lives in Githunguri with his wife. He is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester in order to reduce the costs of his business and to improve crop yields in order to save money for his family.

Francis finds himself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas due to the heat required in the milk production process. By using the biogas generated by his 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will decrease both his costs and his carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on his beans crops.

This loan represents 62% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Francis.
