Carlos Alberto

Santa Isabel Tetlatlahuca, Tlax., Mexico / Agriculture

Carlos Alberto'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 and use biogas, a renewable energy for milk pasteurization.

Carlos Alberto's story

Carlos Alberto has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. He lives in Santa Isabel Tetlatlahuca with four family members. He is buying a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce the costs of his business and to improve crop yields in order to save money for his family.

Carlos Alberto finds himself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas due to the heat required in the milk production process. By using the biogas generated by his thirty cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will decrease both his costs and his carbon footprint. The same cow manure used to produce the biogas, will also produce a potent biofertilizer to use on his corn and alfalfa crops.

This loan represents 71% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Carlos Alberto.
