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

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester and use biogas, a renewable energy, for milk pasteurization.

Eduardo's story

Eduardo has a passion for producing quality dairy products, especially milk. He lives in Acatlan 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.

Eduardo 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 20-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 crops.

This loan represents 60 percent of the price of the biodigester. The remaining part is paid directly by Eduardo.
