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

A loan helped to invest in clean energy technology for his farm.

Winson's story

Winson is worried about the bad impact of the daily manure produced by his 4 cows. It is a huge problem for Winson's farm. First of all, it attracts many flies and other harmful insects. Then, the harmful pathogens contaminate the floor and pollute the water and air, emitting greenhouse gases.

Winson heard about the biodigester concept that permits it to “digest” the manure, recycling it into energy (biogas) and eco-friendly fertilizer (biol). This biodigester is a cost-effective opportunity for Winson and his family.
He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa to reduce his carbon footprint and save the large space normally dedicated to stock the manure.

This loan represents 76% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy."
