Hassan'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 save money and pay for his kids' education.

Hassan's story

Hassan has 2 children and lives in the rural region of Kiambu. His dream is to create a cost-effective, sustainable dairy farm to pass on to his children and even his future grandchildren.

He is currently spending too much money on the propane required to heat the milk produced by his cows for pasteurization. With the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will reduce his reliance on expensive and non-renewable LP gas and agrochemical fertilizers by processing the manure from his dairy cows to produce biogas and biofertilizer, helping both his wallet and the environment. This loan will help Hassan to install a six-cubic-meter biodigester that will pay for itself after an average of two years.

The resulting reduction in operating costs will allow him to better deal with the fluctuating and unpredictable milk prices and make it easier for Hassan and his kids to continue the generations-old tradition of dairy farming in Kiambu.

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