Jose's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to invest in a 200-cubic meter waste-to-energy biodigester.

Jose's story

Jose is an ambitious farmer who wants to turn his dairy farm into a model for sustainable, small-scale productive farms. He decided to invest in a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester in order to treat the manure of his 130 cows and transform it into renewable energy (biogas) and nutrient-rich organic fertilizer for domestic and productive uses.

Indeed, he used to pile up his animals' waste on his farm, where it was emitting greenhouse gases and contaminating the environment. Through his biodigester, Jose will be able to save the money he used to spend on LP gas and chemical fertilizers, in order to invest in the expansion of his farm.

Among others, he wants to buy more cows and increase his corn production. His farm will become more cost-effective and sustainable as he starts applying the organic fertilizer to nourish the soil in a natural manner by applying the organic fertilizer produced in the biodigester. He looks forward to transforming a problem into a solution and to show that waste actually is a resource!

This loan represents 78% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Jose.
