Eileen'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.

Eileen's story

Eileen lives in the rural region of Uasingishu. Her dream is to create a cost-effective, sustainable dairy farm to pass on to her children, and even her future grandchildren.

Eileen is currently spending too much money on the propane required to heat milk produced by her cows for pasteurization. With the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, Eileen will reduce her reliance on expensive and non-renewable LP gas and agrochemical fertilizers. She will process the manure from her cows to produce biogas and bio-fertilizer, helping both her wallet and the environment.

This loan will help Eileen install a 10-cubic meter biodigester that will pay for itself after an average of two years. This loan represents 66% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Eileen.
