A loan helped to buy a biodigester to transform her farm into a sustainable business.


Bornes's story

Bornes, as many coffee farmers are, is very curious. They are continuously searching and innovating to decrease production costs, but at the same time ensure the best coffee quality production.

Bornes saw that her neighbors installed a Sistema.bio digester in their farm and she saw how the biodigester was making amazing changes in their crops. The cows' manure was transformed into a very potent and organic fertilizer and biogas (clean and renewable energy) through the biodigester.

Bornes wants to buy her own biodigester to reduce her reliance on expensive and non-renewable agrochemical fertilizers to increase the quality of her vegetables, processing the manure from her cows, helping both her wallet and the environment.

This loan represents 65% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
