Simon'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 his farm waste into resources and expand his business.


Simon's story

Simon is a young entrepreneur taking over the family farm. He is very interested in opportunities to use new technologies. He wants to be part of a new adventure: organic, eco-responsible production. He has convinced his parents to upgrade their production with a biodigester.

The family has four cows producing daily organic waste. Using the system, the family will expand their corn production while avoiding ground contamination and excessive CO2 emissions, for the well-being of the next generations.

Simon is an example proving to all the small household farmers that it is possible to make a farm a real business opportunity.

This loan represents 74% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
