María Joaquina


A loan of $1,125 helped to purchase an 8 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


María Joaquina's story

María Joaquina (pictured with her husband), a grain farmer from Tlaxcala, is interested in transforming her animal waste into resources. She is investing in her 8 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester because she hopes to use the waste from her pigs and sheep to generate her own clean, renewable energy and organic fertilizer for use on her maize, wheat, and barley crops. By purchasing this system, she hopes to replace the expensive and non-renewable LP gas her family currently uses to cook and heat bathwater. This Kiva loan represents 56% of the total cost of her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
