Flora'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 her farm into a sustainable business.

Flora's story

Flora is a farmer who calls Ainapkoi home. Flora has 4 children. Her goal is to increase her income from her farm to have savings for her children. She will do this by transforming her cows' waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizer to save money and improve the productivity of her farm.

Flora is investing in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat her animals' manure, removing flies and bad smells while avoiding the contamination of underground water sources. She will replace the expensive LP gas with clean and renewable energy (biogas) and eliminate chemical fertilizers, thereby saving money and displacing fossil fuel-based inputs. At the same time, the yield of her vegetables field will improve naturally as she starts applying the organic fertilizer, nourishing the soil in a sustainable manner.

This loan represents 64% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Flora.
