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

Felista's story

Felista is an ambitious farmer and also a businesswoman. She lives in Kiambu with her family and wants to buy a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to save time and money to invest in her business and pay for her six kids' education.

Felista 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.

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

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

This loan represents 65 percent of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
