A loan of $975 helped to purchase a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Jose Gregorio's story

Well-known locally for the quality of their produce, José Gregorio (pictured on the left with his three sons) and his family want to reduce their production costs. Their 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester will allow them to completely supplant expensive agrochemical fertilizer with the waste produced by his cows and pigs. The resultant potent organic fertilizer will be used on his maize, wheat, and squash crops. The biodigester will also produce biogas allowing him to reduce the use of non-renewable LP Gas in cooking and heating bathwater. This Kiva loan represents 68% of the total value of his system.
