Julius'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 power his farm and home with his cows manure.

Julius's story

Julius is a farmer who calls Meru home. Julius has two children. His goal is to increase the income from his farm to have savings for his children. He will do this by transforming his cow's waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizer to save money and improve the productivity of his farm.

Julius is investing in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat his cow's manure, removing flies and bad smells while avoiding the contamination of underground water sources. He will replace the expensive LP gas with clean and renewable energy (biogas) and eliminate chemical fertilizers, thereby saving money and displacing fossil fuel-based inputs. At the same time, the yield of his vegetable field will improve naturally as he starts applying the organic fertilizer, nourishing the soil in a sustainable manner.

This loan represents 61% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Julius.
