Lucy's story

Lucy is a resilient businesswoman who has survived harsh and challenging times. She is a single mother, and that meant working extra hard in order to provide a modest education and lifestyle for her children. Juggling between farm work and business meant enduring the cold early mornings and late evening haste. Reliance on wood fuel under these conditions, especially during the rainy seasons, would mean choosing between having breakfast and losing out on a business opportunity.

That is why Lucy decided to invest in a Sistema.bio digester to transform her cows' waste into energy. With her biodigester, Lucy and her family will produce their own energy and fertilizer.

This will also be an opportunity to save money and provide healthy organic food for her family and clients. She will use the money she saves to pay school fees for her children and expand her business.

This loan represents 64% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Lucy and with a government subsidy.
