A loan of $1,600 helped to purchase a 12-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.

Marcelo's story

Marcelo will use the biogas generated by his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to produce cheese. A dairy farmer and cheese maker, Marcelo finds himself spending a lot of money on non-renewable LP gas due to the heat required in the production process. By using the biogas generated by his 12-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester he will reduce his costs and carbon footprint. With the same cow manure used to produce the biogas, he will get a potent biofertilizer to use on his alfalfa and maize crops. As a result, the biodigester will allow him to make cheese heated using biogas with milk from cows eating feed fertilized with their own processed manure – a web of sustainability.

This Kiva loan will help him cover 81% of the system price.
