Catherine'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 power her farm and home.

Catherine's story

Catherine is worried about the bad impact chemical fertilizers have on the quality of her vegetables. 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, resulting in considerably higher crop yields.

Having an organic farm is a benefit for selling as it gives farmers a label of 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.
