Hellen'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 reduce her farm’s costs and improve the environment.

Hellen's story

Hellen is worried about the bad impact chemical fertilizer has on the quality of her milk. Moreover, she is conscious that fossil fuels are an excessive waste of money that she could invest in production or dedicate to the well-being of her family.

She decided to purchase a biodigester that will considerably reduce her carbon footprint; transforming her cows manure into renewable energy and biofertilizer and augmenting considerably higher yields.

Having an organic farm is an added value for selling. It gives farmers a label, ensuring fresh and healthy products.

This loan represents 64% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
