Victor's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support
A loan helped to purchase a 160 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
Victor is a hog farmer and just made a significant investment in a 160 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, in order to proactively take advantage of his animals' waste and produce his own biogas. The purchase of the biodigester is a crucial step for the growth of his business, since operating costs on his farm used to be very high, especially because of the regular purchase of expensive fossil fuel (propane). He now has the opportunity to manage his pigs' manure in an efficient way: he transforms it into renewable energy and can supply his farm in energy he produces himself. From now on, the piglets will stay warm thanks to a biogas-powered heating system that is directly connected to the biodigester! In addition to reducing costs, Victor will transform his hog farm into a model for a productive and environment-friendly waste management system. This loan represents 24% of the total cost of the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
