Joseph's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to power his farm and home with his cows' manure.

Joseph's story

Joseph is worried about the bad impact the daily manure produced by his sixty cows represents. It is a huge problem for Joseph‘s farm. First of all, it attracts many flies and other noxious insects. Then, the harmful pathogens contained contaminate the floor, pollute the water, and pollute the air by emitting greenhouse gases.

He heard about the biodigester concept that permits the manure to “digest”, recycling it into energy (biogas) and eco-friendly fertilizer (biol). This biodigester is a cost-effective opportunity for Joseph and his family members.

He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa to reduce his carbon footprint and to save the large space normally dedicated to stock the manure.

This loan represents 72% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
