Henry'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 his farm into a sustainable business.

Henry's story

Henry has 5 children and lives in the rural region of Konoin. His dream is to create a cost-effective, sustainable dairy farm to pass on to his children and even his future grandchildren.

Henry 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, Henry will reduce his reliance on expensive and non-renewable LP gas and agrochemical fertilizers by processing the manure from his 18 dairy cows to produce biogas and biofertilizer, helping both his wallet and the environment. This loan will help Henry to install a 16 cubic meters 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 Henry and his kids to continue the generations-old tradition of dairy farming in Konoin.

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