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

A loan helped to buy a biodigester to turn his farm waste into resources to expand his business.

Jesús's story

Jesús is a young entrepreneur taking over the family farm. He is very interested in the opportunities that the new technologies can offer. He wants to be part of a new adventure: the organic eco-responsible production. He has convinced his parents to upgrade their production with a Biodigester.

The family has 450 pigs producing daily organic waste. Using the system, the family will grow their corn production avoiding the floor contamination and the excessive CO2 emission for the well-being of the next generations.

Jesús is an example proving to all the small household farmers, that it is possible to make a farm a real business opportunity.

This loan represents 62% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down payment and a government subsidy.
