A loan helped to buy a biodigester to reduce his farm’s costs and expand his business.


George's story

George wants to safeguard the environment. Deforestation has become a menace in Kiambu where he and his family lives and it makes him distraught . He believes that the situation has resulted to very unpredictable weather patterns which is affecting farmers in his community. The reducing land sizes is pushing farmers to clear more land for agricultural purposes and the situation is even further accelerated by the lack of affordable and sustainable energy sources.

George wants to install a Sistema biodigester in order to stop relying on wood fuel and as a result safeguard forests, with his 12 cubic meters system. He will transform 3 cows' manure into a renewable and beautiful flame for cooking. The biodigester will also produce a organic fertilizer to increase vegetable production in a sustainable way.

This loan represents 63% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by George and a government subsidy.
