Gerardo


A loan of $1,950 helped to purchase a 20 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.


Gerardo's story

Gerardo is a young dairy farmer living in a peri-urban zone with neighbors unhappy with the smells and flies emanating from his property. Furthermore, it's not financially viable for him to continue purchasing agrochemical fertilizers because he cannot justify the yields after considering the input cost.

By investing in his 20 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will eliminate the piled manure on his property, improving hygiene, reducing smells, and dramatically reducing the number of flies breeding on his farm. He will also shift from agrochemical fertilizer to biofertilizer for use on his animal fodder. This loan represents 52% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester.
