John's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester and use biogas, a renewable energy, for corn production and milk pasteurization.

John's story

John's parents bought the farm he is working on a long time ago. They were farmers all their lives and thought John and his brothers should look after and improve the field crop because agriculture is what keeps the world alive.

John knows that manure is polluting the planet because of inadequate waste management, which is why he wants to invest in a Sistema.bio biodigester. The biodigester will enable him to transform the manure from 12 cows into renewable clean energy (biogas) and an organic fertilizer called biol.

John will use biogas for corn production and during the pasteurization process. He also will apply the organic fertilizer rather than chemical fertilizers in the forage for animals, taking care of the soil, the animals and production.

This loan represents 63 per cent of the price of the biodigester. The remaining part is paid directly by John.
