José Antonio


A loan of $625 helped to purchase a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


José Antonio's story

José Antonio’s small family farm has become a problem for his neighbors, due to the odor and flies resulting from hog waste. He will use his 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to treat the waste, allowing him to continue his family’s traditional way of life despite the urbanization of his town. Besides reducing odor and flies, his new biodigester will produce renewable biogas and organic fertilizer, displacing non-renewable LP gas and petroleum-intensive agrochemical fertilizer use on his property. This Kiva loan is for 51% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
