Pedro's story

Pedro and his family raise sheep in Western Mexico State and are looking to better benefit from the potential energy and fertilizer produced every single day by their animals. With his eight cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, Pedro will process sheep manure into renewable, methane-rich biogas, allowing him to displace the propane he currently uses to cook and heat bathwater. The digestion process will also create a potent soil amendment helping Pedro improve crop yields without having to invest more money in fossil-fuel based agrochemical fertilizers. This will allow Pedro to be more independent while concurrently saving money and helping the environment. This loan represents 48% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester and biogas stove.
