Lucy W.'s story

Lucy is a mother of four children; two are in primary school and two are at the elementary level. She resides near the 14 Falls in Thika. She is a member of Magogoni Vision Group, which is registered with VEP. Lucy has a business and also does farming. She wants to access a loan to construct a biodigester so that she can access clean gas to power her home and kitchen and use the organic bioslurry to grow other crops to sell at nearby markets. She will also distribute biogas to three of her neighbors, who will pay Lucy for their monthly consumption. Altogether, the biodigester will enable her to save on the cost of electricity and be in a position to repay her loan easily.
