Total loan: $1,150


Bomet, Bomet County, Kenya / Personal Use

Margaret'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 her farm waste into resources to expand her corn production.

Margaret's story

Margaret has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. She lives in Bomet with six family members. She is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce the costs of her business and to improve crop yields in order to save money for her family.

Margaret finds herself 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 her 20 cubic meters Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, she will decrease both her costs and her carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas, will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on her vegetable crops.

This loan represents 62% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Margaret.
