Simon'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 corn production.


Simon's story

Simon has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. He lives in Kericho with five family members. He is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce the costs of his business and to improve crop yields in order to save money for his family.

Simon finds himself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas due to the heat required in the milk production process. By using the biogas generated by his 12-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will decrease both his costs and his carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas, will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on his vegetable crops.

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