Lucy'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.

Lucy's story

Lucy is worried about the negative impact that chemical fertilizers have on the quality of her vegetables. Moreover, she is conscious that fossil fuels waste money that she could invest in her vegetable production or dedicate to the well-being of her family.

Lucy has decided to purchase a biodigester that will considerably reduce her carbon footprint. The biodigester will transform the manure from her eight cows into renewable energy and biofertilizer, leading to considerably higher farm yields.

Having an organic farm also adds sales value because it gives farmers a label that ensures 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.
