Eduardo's story

Eduardo wants to safeguard the environment. Deforestation has become a menace in Estado de Mexico where he and his family lives. He believes that the situation has resulted in very unpredictable weather patterns which is affecting farmers in his community, pushing farmers to clear more land for agricultural purposes. The situation is even further accelerated by the lack of affordable and sustainable energy sources.

Eduardo wants to install a Sistema.bio digester in order to stop relying on wood fuel and as a result safeguard forests. With his 12 cubic meters system, he will transform 10 cows' manure into a renewable and beautiful flame to cook. The biodigester will also produce a organic fertilizer to increase vegetable production in a sustainable way.

This loan represents 41% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Eduardo and a government subsidy.
