Juan Carlos's story

Juan Carlos, pictured with his wife, is a farmer from Morelos who cares about the environment. When he decided to open a new slaughterhouse in his municipality, there was significant concern over the waste and odors that would be generated from the blood and manure. Historically, farmers in the region have dumped their waste wherever convenient, polluting watersheds and hurting local biodiversity. Juan Carlos wanted to avoid that and is investing in his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester to make sure he doesn't do the same. He will process the waste produced by his slaughterhouse to generate high quality biofertilizer and renewable, methane-rich biogas, reducing his impact on multiple levels: reduced agrochemical fertilizer usage, reduced fossil fuel use, and mitigation of environmental damage caused by properly treating the waste produced on his site. This loan represents 55% of the total price of his system.
