Jacobo's story

Jacobo will use his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to save money and get along better with his neighbors. He’s a hog farmer who lives in an urbanized zone right next to the main church in his county. With his biodigestor, he will treat his pig waste, reducing or eliminating the odor and flies he and his neighbors currently deal with. More importantly, he will dramatically reduce the amount of liquefied petroleum used to cook for the two families living in his home. By taking advantage of the biogas produced by his biodigester, Jacobo will save money and reduce his impact on the environment. He will also save money on fertilizer by using the organic fertilizer produced by his system. This Kiva loan will help pay 80% of the system price.
