Johnstone's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to turn his farm waste into resources to expand his business.

Johnstone's story

Johnstone is a young entrepreneur taking over the family farm. He is very interested in the opportunities that the new technologies can offer. He wants to be part of a new adventure: the organic eco-responsible production. He has convinced his parents to upgrade their production with a biodigester.

The family has 10 cows producing daily organic waste. Using this system, the family will grow their corn production while avoiding ground contamination and the excessive CO2 emissions for the well-being of future generations.

Johnstone is an example to all the small household farmers: it is possible to make a farm a real business opportunity.

This loan represents 67% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
