A loan of $475 helped to purchase a 6-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.

Wilebaldo's story

Wilebaldo (pictured with his wife and their daughter), a Tlaxcalan dairy farmer, is looking to improve profits. He has invested in a 6-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester because it will allow him to both reduce costs and add value to his products. Using the cow manure from his dairy cows, the system will generate high-quality fertilizer, allowing Wilebaldo to dramatically reduce his spending on agrochemical fertilizer. The system will also generate renewable biogas, allowing Wilebaldo to decrease his spending on the expensive, non-renewable LP gas he currently uses to produce cheese and yogurt, products which fetch a higher price in the market than milk.

Moreover, Wilebaldo and his family, considered innovators in their community, are also moved by the importance of trying to reduce their farm's impact on the environment. This loan represents 33% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
