but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy a biodigester so she can save money and pay for her kids' education.

Beatrice's story

Beatrice is an ambitious farmer and businesswoman. She lives in Kericho with her family and wants to buy a Sistema Biobolsa in order to save time and money to invest in her business and to pay for her seven kids' education.

Beatrice spends too much time chopping wood and then starting the fire to prepare breakfast. With her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, she will transform her cows' manure into renewable energy (biogas). She will be able to cook breakfast for her kids in her biogas stove every morning and get them ready for school on time so she can work to expand her local business.

As she starts putting the animal waste into the biodigester, bacteria will convert it into both biogas for cooking and nutrient-rich fertilizer that Beatrice will apply to her vegetable field.

This loan represents 66% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
