Eunice's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester to power her farm with biogas and stop cutting down trees.

Eunice's story

Eunice lives in Githunguri, and like many farmers in her region, she used to buy firewood to power her farm. However, this has become a problem; now trees are scarce, making it even more difficult for farmers to have affordable access to energy. Eunice plans to use a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to eliminate wood, fossil fuels and chemical fertilizers from her farm.

With her Sistema Biobolsa 20, she will transform her cows' manure into renewable energy and organic fertilizer. She and her family will be able to cook without smoke and stop spending time chopping wood. Eunice’s family will also increase her corn productivity with the organic fertilizer that the biodigester will produce and give back to the soil the nutrients needed to reforest Githunguri.

This loan represents 67% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
