Anna'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 for a healthy cooking experience.

Anna's story

Every time Anna wants to cook, she has to spend an average of 3 hours collecting wood, waiting until it dries and then burning it in the stove. Every month Anna and her family collect an average of 20 kg of firewood.

Anna and her family want to invest in a Sistema.bio biodigester that will allow them to transform manure from 4 cows into renewable biogas energy and organic fertilizer through anaerobic digestion. With their biodigester, Anna's family will stop cooking with firewood and use renewable biogas at their farm. They will not have to worry anymore about the diseases caused by inhaling smoke while they are cooking.

Also, they will be able to increase their vegetable crop with the fertilizer produced by the Sistema and use the time they used to chop wood in agricultural activities.

This loan represents 69% of the full price of the biodigester. The remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
