Prisca'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 her farm waste into resources to expand her corn production.

Prisca's story

Prisca has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. She lives in Bomet with 8 family members. She is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce the costs of her business and improve crop yields to save money for her family.

Prisca finds herself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas due to the heat required in the milk production process. By using the biogas generated by her 40-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, she will decrease both her costs and her carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on her vegetable crops.

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