A loan of $825 helped to purchase an 8 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Cupertino's story

Using the abundant cow manure on his family farm, Cupertino will use his 8 cubic meter biodigester to reduce his cheese production costs while more effectively utilizing the waste he already has. His dairy farm is the primary source of income for his family and the biodigester will allow him to both displace non-renewable LP gas consumption and eliminate agrochemical fertilizer use on his farm. For him, the economic benefits are his primary concern but he is excited to concurrently reduce his impact on the environment. This Kiva loan represents 42% of the total cost of his system.
