Eric's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to purchase a biodigester for his farm.

Eric's story

Eric is an ambitious farmer who wants to turn his farm into a model of sustainability for other small-scale farms to follow. He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester that will transform the manure from his cows into renewable energy (biogas) and a nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for household and commercial uses. Eric used to pile up the cow manure on his farm, which emitted greenhouse gases and contaminated the environment. By using the biodigester, the money that he saves from having to buy LP gas and chemical fertilizers can be invested in the expansion of his farm.

Eric’s goal is to purchase more cows and increase his vegetable production. His farm will become more cost-effective and sustainable as he starts using the fertilizer from the biodigester to nourish the soil in a way that is organic and environmentally friendly. He looks forward to transforming a problem into a solution by showing that waste is actually a resource!

This loan represents 75% of the price of the biodigester. Eric paid the remaining amount.
