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

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to turn his farm waste into resources to expand his corn production.

Kipyegon's story

Kipyegon has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. He lives in Kericho, Kenya, with five family members. He is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce business costs and improve crop yields in order to save money for his family.

Due to the heat required in the milk production process, Kipyegon finds himself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas. By using the biogas generated by his 8-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, Kipyegon will decrease both his costs and his carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on his vegetable crops.

This loan represents 61% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Kipyegon.
