A loan of $1,450 helped to buy a 20 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Alfonso's story

Alfonso and his family make artisanal cheese from the fresh milk at his small dairy in Tlaxcala, Mexico. The biogas from his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester will allow him to dramatically cut the energy costs of his small workshop. Thier cheeses will be sold at the local markets, and reducing his costs of production will allow him to be more profitable. The organic fertilizer from his biodigester will help improve his production of organic alfalfa and corn that helps support his dairy and his family, and the waste treatment will allow his dairy to be cleaner and healthier. He hopes that this improved productivity of his cheese making will allow him to continue with this tradition, while also reducing his impact on the environment.
