Geofrey'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 reduce his farm’s costs and improve the environment.

Geofrey's story

Geofrey, as many tea farmers are, is very curious. They are continuously searching and innovating to decrease production costs but at the same time ensure the best tea quality production.

Geofrey saw that his neighbors installed a Sistema.bio digester in their farms, and he saw how the biodigester was making amazing changes in their crops.

The animals' manure was transformed into a very potent and organic fertilizer and biogas (clean and renewable energy) through the biodigester.

Geofrey wants to buy his own biodigester to reduce his reliance on expensive and non-renewable agrochemical fertilizers to increase the quality of his crops by processing the manure from his cows, helping both his wallet and the environment.

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.
