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

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

Janeth's story

Janeth is worried about the bad impact the daily manure produced by her 8 cows. It is a huge problem for Janeth‘s farm. First of all, it attracts many flies and other noxious insects. Then, the harmful pathogens contained in it contaminate the floor and pollute the water. It further pollutes the air by emitting greenhouse gases.

She heard about the biodigester concept that “digests” the manure recycling it in energy (biogas) and eco-friendly fertilizer. This biodigester is a cost-effective opportunity for Janeth and her family.

She decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa to reduce her carbon footprint and to save the large space normally dedicated to store the manure.

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.
