A loan of $1,150 helped to purchase a 4 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Norberto's story

As a next-generation farmer, Norberto is excited to apply bioenergy on his farm, using a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat waste and produce biogas and organic fertilizer. Only 18 years old, Norberto already shows entrepreneurial spirit. Raised by a single mother, he has succeeded in his studies while working with his twin brother to support the family with their expenses. Norberto will use this Kiva loan to invest in a 4 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigestor in order to use the organic fertilizer produced by his gladiolas, which he sells at the local market. The current costs of agrochemical fertilizers limit how much he can plant. With the biodigester, he will be able to expand his production while concurrently reducing his costs and his impact on the environment.
