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

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester to turn farm waste into renewable resources.

Vincent's story

Vincent is an ambitious farmer, who wants to turn his farm into a model for sustainable, small-scale farms. He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester in order to treat the manure of his 5 cows and transform it into renewable energy (biogas) and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for domestic and productive uses.

Indeed, Vincent used to pile up his animals' waste on his farm, where it was emitting greenhouse gases and contaminating the environment.
Thanks to his biodigester, Vincent will be able to save the money he used to spend on LP gas and chemical fertilizers, and invest it to expand his farm.

Vincent’s goal is to purchase more cows and increase his milk production. His farm will become more cost-effective and sustainable as he starts applying the fertilizer from the biodigester to nourish the soil in an entirely organic and environmentally-friendly manner.

Vincent looks forward to transforming a problem into a solution, and to showing that waste actually is a resource!

This loan represents 64% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Vincent.
