Hannah'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 power her farm and home with her cows' manure.

Hannah's story

Hannah is a farmer who calls Kiambu home. Hannah has three children. Her goal is to increase her income from her farm to have savings for her children.

Hannah will do this by transforming her cows' waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizer to save money and improve the productivity of her farm.

Hannah is investing in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat her cows' manure, removing flies and bad smells, while avoiding the contamination of underground water sources.

Hannah will replace the expensive LP gas with clean and renewable energy (biogas) and eliminate chemical fertilizers, thereby saving money and displacing fossil fuels based inputs.

At the same time, the yield of Hannah's vegetable field will improve naturally as she starts applying the organic fertilizer, nourishing the soil in a sustainable manner.

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