A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase a biodigester to power his farm with biogas and stop cutting trees.


Vincent's story

Vincent lives in Belgut. Like many farmers in his region, he used to buy firewood to power his farm, but this has become a problem. Now trees are scarce, making it even more difficult for farmers to have affordable access to energy. Vincent plans to use a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to eliminate wood, fossil fuels, and chemical fertilizers from his farm.

With his 20-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa he will transform his cow's manure into renewable energy and organic fertilizer. He and his family will be able to cook without smoke and stop spending time chopping wood. Vincent will also increase his farm's productivity with the organic fertilizer that the biodigester produces and give back to the soil the nutrients needed to reforest Belgut.

This loan represents 62% of the full price of the biodigester; the remaining part was covered by a cash down-payment and a government subsidy.


This loan is special because:

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