Mirriam's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester to turn farm waste into renewable resources.

Mirriam's story

Mirriam is a young entrepreneur taking over the family farm. She is very interested in the opportunities that can offer the new technologies, she wants to be part of a new adventure: the organic eco-responsible production. She has convinced her parents to upgrade their production with a Biodigester.

The family has cows producing daily organic waste. Using the system the family will grow their corn field avoiding the floor contamination and the excessive CO2 emission for the well-being of the next generations.

Mirriam is an example proving at all the small household farmers, that it is possible to make a farm a real business opportunity.

This loan represents 59% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
