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


A loan helped to buy a biodigester to reduce his farm’s costs and expand his business.


Denis's story

Denis wants to safeguard the environment. Deforestation has become a menace in Kericho where he and his family live, something that makes him distraught. He believes that the situation has resulted in very unpredictable weather patterns, which is affecting farmers in his community. The reducing land sizes is pushing farmers to clear more land for agricultural purposes, and the situation is even further accelerated by the lack of affordable and sustainable energy sources.

Denis wants to install a Sistema.bio digester in order to stop relying on wood fuel and as a result safeguard forests. With his 40 cubic meters system, he will transform 4 cows' manure into a renewable and beautiful flame to cook. The biodigester will also produce organic fertilizer to increase vegetable production in a sustainable way.

This loan represents 64% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Denis and a government subsidy.
