A loan helped to buy a biodigester to produce energy and fertilizer.

Regina's story

Regina is a resilient businesswoman who has survived harsh and challenging times. She is a single mother, which means that she has had to work harder in order to provide a modest education and lifestyle for her children. Juggling between farm work and her business means she has had to endure the early cold mornings and continue late into the evening. Having to rely on wood as a fuel source under these conditions, especially during the rainy season, means choosing between having breakfast and losing out on a business opportunity.

For this reason, Regina decided to invest in a Sistema.bio digester to transform the manure from her cows into energy. With a biodigester, she and her family will be able to produce their own energy and fertilizer. This will also be an opportunity to save money and provide healthy organic food for her family and customers. Regina will use the money she saves to pay school fees for her children and to expand her business.

This loan represents 64% of the price of the biodigester. The remaining cost will be paid directly by Regina and with the help of a government subsidy.
