A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase a 12-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.

César's story

César's Sistema Biobolsa biodigester will help him become more self-sufficient, allowing him to rely less on expensive and non-renewable LP gas and agrochemical fertilizers by shifting to renewable biogas and biofertilizer. As his livelihood is based entirely on the income generated by selling dairy products to intermediaries, reducing his overall costs will allow César to better deal with fluctuating milk prices. His biodigester will convert the cow manure he already has into fuel and fertilizer, turning waste into resources, while reducing César’s carbon footprint.

This Kiva loan will help him cover 56% of the system price.
