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

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

Joseph's story

Joseph, 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.

Joseph saw that his neighbors installed a Sistema.bio digester on their farms and he 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.

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