A loan of $1,675 helped to purchase a 12 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.

Gonzalo's story

Gonzalo, from a small, tight-knit community in Central Puebla, is proud of his farm and wants to add a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to increase his efficiency and sustainability. Raising cattle and tending his crops represent his family’s only income source and it has been this way for generations.

Gonzalo, who inherited the farm from his own parents, involves his children in the business, assuring the transmission of knowledge and tradition. With the lives of his family so intrinsically tied to the land, Gonzalo knows the importance of taking care of it. With his Sistema Biobolsa purchased with this Kiva loan, he will be able to more effectively treat and use his animal waste, drastically reduce agrochemical fertilizer usage, benefit from biogas, and show his children that it is possible to implement sustainable technology while concurrently preserving the culture and tradition of the small-family farm.
