A loan of $1,200 helped to purchase a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Jose Luis's story

José Luis and his three brothers will use their Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to reduce the costs of their dairy farm. From Hidalgo, the four inherited the farm from their father and want to maintain the tradition, while also investing to lower costs and improve yields. With a 6 cubic meter biodigester, the cow manure will be processed, producing renewable energy in the form of biogas and organic fertilizer, which will then be applied to the crops used to feed the animals. By replacing agrochemical fertilizer and non-renewable LP gas use on their farm, the brothers will reduce their costs and their environmental footprint while maintaining their family legacy. This Kiva loan will be used to fund 84% of the system's price.
