Peter's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to purchase a biodigester to turn farm waste into renewable resources.


Peter's story

Peter is a farmer who calls Ainamoi home. His goal is to increase his income from his farm to have savings for his children. He will do this by transforming his cows' waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizer to save money and improve the productivity of his farm.

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

This loan represents 67% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Peter.
