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

A loan helped to invest in a biodigester and safeguard the environment.

Zakayo's story

Zakayo is worried about the bad impact the chemical fertilizers have on the quality of his vegetables. Moreover, he is conscious that the fossil fuels are an excessive waste of money that he could invest in his production or dedicate to the well-being of his family.

He decided to purchase a Biodigester that will considerably reduce his carbon footprint transforming his five cows’ manure into renewable energy and biofertilizer augmenting considerably higher yields.

Having an organic farm is an added value for selling; it gives farmers a label of ensuring fresh and healthy products.

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.
