A loan of $525 helped to purchase a 10 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Víctor's story

Víctor is a small farmer living in a town slowly being absorbed by the adjacent city. The urbanization of his community has forced him to reassess the feasibility of his small farm. By using this Kiva loan to invest in a 10 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will be able to continue raising animals without inconveniencing his neighbors. The biodigester will allow him to process and treat his animal waste, virtually eliminating the odor and flies normally associated with piles of manure. By being able to continue farming in the face of urban encroachment, he will preserve his community’s traditional practices while doing so in an environmentally sustainable and neighbor-friendly manner.
