Neddie's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to invest in clean energy technology for her farm.

Neddie's story

Neddie is worried about the bad impact the daily manure produced by her 4 cows. It is a huge problem for her farm. First of all, it attracts many flies and other insects. Second, harmful pathogens contained in the manure contaminate the floor and pollute the water and air, emitting greenhouse gases.

Neddie heard about the Biodigester concept that “digests” the manure, recycling it into energy (Biogas) and eco-friendly fertilizer (Biol). This Biodigester is a cost-effective opportunity for Neddie and her family.

She decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa to reduce her carbon footprint and to save the large space normally dedicated to stock the manure.

This loan represents 78% of the full price of the biodigester; the remainder was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
