A loan of $2,700 helped to purchase a 40 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Cecilia's story

As a single woman, Cecilia is considered a strong farmer and a strong personality in her home state of Tlaxcala. The idea of a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester for her farm and family is an excellent option because she is unwilling to fall into the typical farmer or “housewife” stereotype. As a result of the economic crisis, the farm is the only source of income for her family and she is constantly looking for ways to reduce her costs.

This Kiva loan is being used towards the purchase of a 40 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, which will allow her to completely eliminate the use of agrochemical fertilizers on her farm, thereby reducing her costs and her carbon footprint. She will also use the biogas to replace the LP gas she currently uses to cook for the family and heat their bathwater at the end of a long day’s work.
