Andrés'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 and biogas stove.
Andrés is a sheep rancher in Mexico State, not too far from the border with Mexico City. His animals produce 40 kg of waste per day and he'd like to take advantage of the energy and biofertilizer this "waste" could be converted into. He is investing in a 10 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester in order to produce his own biogas and biofertilizer. The fertilizer will improve his crop yields without him having to spend more money on agrochemical fertilizers and the biogas will allow Andrés to displace the propane he currently relies on to cook and heat bathwater. This loan represents 90% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
