Rotich'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 transform his farm into a sustainable business.

Rotich's story

Rotich, like many coffee farmers, are very curious. They are continuously searching and innovating to decrease production costs, but at the same time ensure the best coffee quality production.

Rotich saw that his neighbors installed a Sistema.bio digester in their farms and how the biodigester was making amazing changes in their crops. The cows' manure was transformed into a very potent and organic fertilizer and biogas (clean and renewable energy) through the biodigester.

Rotich wants to buy his own biodigester to reduce his reliance on expensive and non-renewable agrochemical fertilizers, and to increase the quality of his vegetables by processing the manure from his cows; helping both his wallet and the environment.

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.
