Marry'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 cook with biogas, produce fertilizer for her vegetables, and help the environment.

Marry's story

Marry lives in Belgut. As many farmers in her region do, she used to buy firewood to power her farm, but this has become a problem. Now trees are scarce, making it even more difficult for farmers to have affordable access to energy. Marry plans to use a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to eliminate wood, fossil fuels, and chemical fertilizers from her farm.

With her 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa 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 in chopping wood.

Marry’s family will also increase their vegetable production with the organic fertilizer that the biodigester will produce and give back to the soil the nutrients needed to reforest Belgut.

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.
