Nicolas's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to purchase a 12 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
Nicolas and his family were very enthusiastic when they heard about the opportunity to purchase a 12 cubic meter biodigester. They raise animals and grow crops on their small farm and see the biodigester as a tool to close the natural cycle of their daily work. Producing biogas and biofertilizer from their animals' feces allows them to transform what they considered as waste into renewable energy to cook and heat bathwater, as well as into potent organic fertilizer to improve the productivity of their crops in a natural way. They will progressively be able to fully displace the expensive LP gas and chemical fertilizers they currently rely on, saving money while reducing their carbon footprint and improving hygiene on their farm (no more waste piling up outside, less flies and risk of disease contamination). This loan represents 48% of the total cost of the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
