Humberto'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 turn his farm waste into resources to expand his meat production.

Humberto's story

Humberto is an ambitious farmer who wants to turn his cow farm into a model for sustainable, small-scale farms. He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat the manure of his nine cows and transform it into renewable energy (biogas) and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for domestic and productive uses. Indeed, he used to pile up his animals' waste on his farm, where it was emitting greenhouse gases and contaminating the environment. Through his biodigester, Humberto will be able to use the money he used to spend on LP gas and chemical fertilizers to invest in the expansion of his farm.

Humberto’s goal is to purchase more cows and increase his corn 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 and environmentally-friendly manner. He looks forward to transforming a problem into a solution and to showing that waste actually is a resource!

This loan represents 59% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Humberto.
