A loan helped to buy a biodigester to power her farm and home with her cow manure.


Mary's story

Mary is a farmer who calls Meru home. Mary has 5 children; her goal is to increase her income from her farm to have savings for her children. She will do this by transforming her cows' waste into renewable energy and organic fertilizer to save money and improve the productivity of her farm.

Mary is investing in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat her cow manure, removing flies and bad smells while avoiding the contamination of underground water sources. She will replace the expensive LP gas with clean and renewable energy (biogas) and eliminate chemical fertilizers, thereby saving money and displacing fossil fuel-based inputs. At the same time, the yield of her vegetable field will improve naturally as she starts applying the organic fertilizer, nourishing the soil in a sustainable manner.

This loan represents 76% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Mary.


This loan is special because:

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