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

A loan helped to invest in clean energy technology for his farm.

Kirui's story

Kirui is worried about the bad impact of the daily manure produced by his 3 cows. It is a huge problem for Kirui ‘s farm. First of all, it attracts many flies and other nocive insects. Then, the harmful pathogens contained contaminate the floor and pollute the water and the air, emitting greenhouse gases.

Kirui heard about the Biodigester concept that “digests” the manure, recycling it in energy (Biogas) and eco-friendly fertilizer (Biol). This Biodigester is a cost-effective opportunity for Kirui and his family. He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa to reduce his carbon footprint and to save the large space normally dedicated to stock the manure.

This loan represents 90% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
