A loan helped 18 to buy a biodigester to save money and pay for her kids' education.

Grace's story

Grace is a resilient businesswoman who has survived harsh and challenging times. She is a single mother and that means working extra harder in order to provide a modest education and lifestyle for her children. Juggling her vegetable farm and business means enduring the cold mornings and late evening haste. Reliance on wood fuel under these conditions and during the rainy seasons would mean choosing between having breakfast and losing out on a business opportunity. That is why Grace decided to invest in a Sistema.bio biodigester to transform her 12 cows' waste into energy. With her biodigester Grace will produce her own energy and fertilizer.

This will also be an opportunity to save money and provide healthy organic food for her family and clients. She will use the money she saves to pay school fees for her children and to expand her business.

This loan represents 65% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Grace and with a government subsidy.
