James'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 power his farm and home with his cow manure.


James's story

James is a farmer who calls Kiambu home. James has 4 children and his goal is to increase his income from his farm to have savings for his children.
He will do this by transforming cow waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizer, to save money and improve the productivity of his farm.

James is investing in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat his cows manure, and remove flies and bad smell, while avoiding the contamination of underground water sources.
He will replace the expensive LP gas with clean and renewable energy (biogas) and eliminate mineral fertilizers, thereby saving money and replacing fossil fuels-based inputs. At the same time, the yield of his vegetable field will improve naturally, as he starts applying the organic fertilizer, nourishing the soil in a sustainable manner.

This loan represents 75% of the price of the biodigester. The remaining part is paid directly by James.
