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

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to reduce her farm’s costs and improve the environment.

Patricia's story

Patricia is an ambitious farmer who wants to turn her cow farm into a model for sustainable, small-scale farms. She decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester in order to treat the manure of her five cows and transform it into renewable energy (biogas) and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for domestic and productive uses.

Indeed, she used to pile up her animals' waste on her farm, where it was emitting greenhouse gases and contaminating the environment. Through her biodigester, Patricia will be able to use the money she used to spend on LP gas and chemical fertilizers to invest in the expansion of her farm.

Patricia’s goal is to purchase more cows and increase her vegetable production. Her farm will become more cost-effective and sustainable as she starts applying the fertilizer from the biodigester to nourish the soil in an entirely organic and environmentally-friendly manner. She looks forward to transforming a problem into a solution and to showing that waste actually is a resource!

This loan represents 66 percent of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Patricia.
