Lillian's story

Lillian is a resilient businesswoman who has survived harsh and challenging times. She is a single mother and that has meant working extra hard in order to provide a modest education and lifestyle for her children. Juggling between vegetable farm and business meant enduring the cold mornings and late evening haste. Reliance on wood fuel under these conditions and during the rainy seasons would mean choosing between having breakfast and losing out on a business opportunity. That is why Lillian decided to invest in a Sistema.bio digester to transform waste from her 3 cows into energy. With her biodigester Lillian and her 6 will produce their own energy and fertilizer.

This will also be an opportunity to save money and provide healthy organic food for her family and clients. She will use the money she saves to pay school fees for her children and to expand her business.

This loan represents 74% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Lillian and with a government subsidy."
