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


Angela's story

Angela (pictured on the left with her husband and their two daughters), a Tlaxcalan beekeeper, has a diverse backyard farm she would like to invest in. After learning about biodigesters, she decided to invest in a 6-cubic-meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester. Using the waste from her sheep, cows and pigs, she will generate renewable energy in the form of clean-burning biogas to displace the LP gas she currently uses. Additionally, she will obtain a potent, organic fertilizer to use on her crops. Her investment will allow her to save money by turning waste into multiple resources. Her Kiva loan represents 43 percent of the total cost of her Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
