Luis's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped To purchase a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester for his farm.
Luis and his family decided together to purchase a 10-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester after hearing about the technology. Focused on saving money while reducing the environmental impact of his farm, Luis will use cow manure from his dairy cows to generate biogas and potent organic fertilizer. The methane-rich renewable biogas will allow his family to cut their consumption of the non-renewable LP gas they are currently using to heat bathwater and cook. Luis will also reduce the production costs of his maize and alfalfa by supplanting expensive agrochemical fertilizer with the organic fertilizer generated from his cows. This loan represents 40% of the total cost of the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
