A loan of $650 helped to purchase a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Esther's story

The rising costs of agrochemical fertilizers are making it increasingly harder for Esther (pictured with her son) and her son to continue farming tomatoes. In order to become more competitive, she is constantly looking for solutions to decrease her expenses. With her 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester and the waste from her cows and turkeys, she will become fully self-sufficient in organic fertilizer production. She will also use the biogas generated by the system to displace LP gas consumption in the kitchen and her boiler. This Kiva loan is for 51% of the total cost of her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
