A loan helped to invest in a biodigester and safeguard the environment.


Thomas's story

Thomas is worried about the bad impact that chemical fertilizers have on the quality of his vegetables. Moreover, he is aware that fossil fuels are an excessive waste of money that he could invest in its production or dedicate to the well-being of his family.

Thomas has decided to purchase a biodigester that will considerably reduce his carbon footprint by transforming the manure from his three cows into renewable energy. Plus, the resulting biofertilizer will lead to considerably higher yields.

Having an organic farm is an added value for selling; it gives farmers a label that ensures fresh and healthy products.

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.
