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


Román's story

Román (who is on the right in the photo, pictured with his wife, son and daughter)and his family have farmed the rolling plains of Tepeaca for generations. In recent years, rising energy and fertilizer costs have made it harder for their farm to generate a livable income. In order to reduce their expenses, Román will use a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to generate the energy required by his family. They will use renewable biogas in the kitchen and bathroom, to cook and to heat bath water, replacing their LP gas use. The biodigester will also convert their cow manure into a powerful fertilizer for use on their maize, beans, cilantro, and lettuce. This loan represents 52% of the total cost of Román's Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
