A loan of $2,175 helped to distribute Sistema Biobolsa biodigesters in his region.

Jaime's story

After seeing the impact that Sistema Biobolsa biodigesters have had in his region, Jaime decided that he wanted to start installing the system in his community. Jaime has a family-run business based in Tecamachalco that is focused on dissemination of appropriate farming technologies and micro credit. Sistema Biobolsa will now be an additional product that he offers. An agricultural engineer, Jaime has been working in the Central Mexico region and is now focused on sustainable farming applications. He and his wife Dolores installed their first group of Sistema Biobolsa biodigesters in November 2011 after seeing several success stories in their home region. Jaime was particularly motivated by the impact that organic fertilizers and renewable energy can have to improve the economic viability of farmers in the region. They have installed over 50 biodigesters and have dramatically increased knowledge of the technology in the region through community events.

This loan will allow Jaime to invest in his business, allowing him to increase the scope of his business, train and hire new technicians, cover a larger geographic area, and continue to provide excellent service to farmers wanting to invest in sustainable farming and renewable energy through the technology he provides.
