Purity'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 and help the environment.

Purity's story

Every time Purity wants to cook, she has to spend an average of 3 hours collecting wood, wait until it dries and then burn it in the stove. Every month Purity and her family collect firewood.

Purity and her family want to invest in a Sistema.bio biodigester that will allow them transform three cows' manure into renewable energy biogas and organic fertilizer through anaerobic digestion. With their biodigester, Purity family will stop cooking with firewood and use renewable biogas at their farm. They will not have to worry anymore about the diseases caused by inhaling smoke while they are cooking.

Also they will be able to increase their tea production with the fertilizer produced by the Sistema, and use the time they used to chop wood in agricultural activities.

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.
