A loan helped to buy a biodigester to save money and improve her farm.


Ruth's story

Ruth’s parents bought the farm she is working on, a long time ago. They were farmers all their lives, and taught Ruth and her brothers to look after it and improve the field crop, because agriculture is what makes the world alive.

Ruth knows manure is polluting the planet because of the inadequate waste management, that is why she wants to invest in a Sistema biodigester that will allow her transform the manure from cows into renewable clean energy (biogas) and an organic fertilizer called biol.

Ruth will use biogas for milk production and during the pasteurization process. They also will apply the organic fertilizer in the forage for animals instead of chemical fertilizers taking care of the soil, the animals and the production.

This loan represents 63% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Ruth.
