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

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester for his farm.

Edmond's story

Edmond is a farmer from Kisii who has three cows. He lives with his family and the money he earns from his farm is their main source of income off which to live.

Edmond currently spends too much money on propane to power his home for cooking and to heat water. He purchased an eight cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester that will transform the abundant amount of manure from his cows into biogas to replace his need for propane. The biodigester will also produce a rich biofertilizer. Not only will Edmond be able to use the biogas to cook and heat bathwater for his family, but he can use the biofertilizer to increase his crop yield. He no longer has to resort to expensive, petroleum-based chemical fertilizers.

This loan represents 66% of the total cost of the biodigester. The remaining amount was covered by a government subsidy.
