A loan of $975 helped to buy a biodigester to turn his farm waste into resources to expand his milk production.

Salomon's story

Salomon lives in the rural region of Acambay Mexico. His dream is to create a cost-effective, sustainable dairy farm to pass on to his family.

Salomon is currently spending too much money on the propane required to heat the milk produced by his cows for pasteurization. With the Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, Salomon will reduce his reliance on expensive and non-renewable LP gas and agrochemical fertilizers by processing the manure from his eight dairy cows to produce biogas and biofertilizer, helping both his wallet and the environment. This loan will help Salomon to install a 20-cubic-meter biodigester that will pay for itself after an average of two years.

The resulting reduction in operating costs will allow him to better deal with the fluctuating and unpredictable milk prices and make it easier for Salomon and his family to continue the generations-old tradition of dairy farming in the Acambry region of Mexico State.

This loan represents 60% of the price of the biodigester; the remaining part is paid directly by Salomon.

This loan is special because:

It saves farmers money by transforming waste into biogas and organic fertilizer.
