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


María Petra's story

María Petra, the matriarch of a farming household in a small town in Tlaxcala, knows the importance of staying competitive. Their farm represents their primary income source and María Petra has decided to invest in a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester because she hopes to reduce energy and fertilizer costs, thereby freeing up money for other things.

With the waste from her cows, pigs, and chickens, she will be able to produce biogas for use in the kitchen and bathroom, displacing firewood and non-renewable LP gas. The treated waste will be a potent organic fertilizer for use on her corn plot. This loan represents 51% of the total cost of her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
