A loan of $400 helped to purchase a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Marcial's story

Marcial (pictured on the right with his wife and their family) currently uses firewood to cook and to heat his family's bathwater. However, due to deforestation, firewood prices are increasing. He wants to invest in a 6 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester because it will allow him to process his cow manure into clean and renewable biogas. This investment will result in energy, savings, a decrease in deforestation, and a reduction of his family's exposure to soot created by burning the wood. In addition, the digester will generate potent organic fertilizer that will allow Marcial to reduce agrochemical fertilizer use on his family's farm. Also, he and his family will save money thereby increasing self-sufficiency. This loan will cover 34% of the total cost of Marcial's Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
