Lillian'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 transform her farm into a sustainable business.

Lillian's story

Lillian, 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.

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

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

This loan represents 63% of the full price of the biodigester. The remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
