A loan helped to buy a biodigester to process animal waste into biogas, save money and pay for her kids education.

Evaline's story

Evaline is an ambitious farmer and she is also a businesswoman. She lives in Sotik with her family and wants to buy a Sistema Biobolsa in order to save time and money to invest on her business and to pay for her 3 kids education.

Evaline spends too much time chopping wood and then starting the fire to prepare breakfast. With her biodigester Sistema Biobolsa, she will transform her cows manure into renewable energy (biogas). Evaline will be able to cook breakfast in her biogas stove every morning for her kids and get them ready for school on time so she can work to expand her local business.

As she starts putting the animal waste into the biodigester, bacteria will convert it into both biogas for cooking and nutrient-rich fertilizer that Evaline will apply on her vegetable field. All of this will enable her to increase her yield to eat healthier and improve her life.

This loan represents 64% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash downpayment and a government subsidy.

This loan is special because:

It saves farmers money by transforming waste into biogas and organic fertilizer.
