Japhet'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 to turn his farm waste into resources to improve his crop production.

Japhet's story

Japhet has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. He lives in Kericho with six family members. He is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce the costs of his business and to improve crop yields.

Japhet finds himself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas due to the heat required in the milk production process. By using the biogas generated by his biodigester, he will decrease both his costs and his carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on his vegetable crops.

This loan represents 74 percent of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Japhet.
