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

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to save money and pay for her kids' education.

Hannah's story

Hannah is an ambitious farmer and also a businesswoman. She lives in Nyandarua with her family and wants to buy a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester in order to save time and money to invest in her business and to pay for the education of her 3 kids.

Hannah spends too much time chopping wood and then starting the fire to prepare breakfast. With her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, she will transform her cows' manure into renewable energy (biogas).

Hannah will be able to cook breakfast in her biogas stove every morning for her kids and get them ready for school on time so she can work to expand her local business.

As she starts putting the animal waste into the biodigester, bacteria will convert it into both biogas for cooking and nutrient-rich fertilizer that Hannah will apply to her vegetable field.

This loan represents 74% of the full price of the biodigester. The remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
