Javier'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 transform his farm into a sustainable business.

Javier's story

Javier is a young entrepreneur taking over the family farm. He is very interested in the opportunities offered by new technologies and wants to be part of a new adventure: organic eco-responsible production.

He has convinced his parents to upgrade their production with a Biodigester. The family has four cows and four pigs producing daily organic waste. Using the system the family will use the waste of the animals, avoiding the floor contamination and the excessive CO2 emissions for the well-being of future generations.

Javier is an example proving to all small household farmers that it is possible to make a farm a real business opportunity. This loan represents 72% of the full price of the Biodigester. The remaining portion was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
