A loan helped to invest in clean energy technology for her farm.

Julia's story

Julia is an ambitious farmer and a business woman. She lives in Meru with her family. She wants to buy a Sistema Biobolsa to save time and money. This will enable her to invest in her business and pay for her kids' education.

Julia spends too much time chopping wood and starting a fire to prepare breakfast. With her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, she will transform her cow manure into renewable energy (biogas). She will be able to cook breakfast for her kids in her biogas stove every morning and get them ready for school on time so she can work to expand her local business.

As she starts putting animal waste into the bio digester, bacteria will convert it into both biogas for cooking and nutrient-rich fertilizer, which Julia will apply on her coffee field. All of this will enable her to increase her yield to eat healthier and improve her life.

This loan represents 61 per cent of the full price of the biodigester. The remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
