José Luis's story

José Luis strives to be the model farmer. He's proud of his animals and crops and it shows in how healthy they look and in the organization readily apparent to anyone who sets foot on his farm. It's also apparent that he runs everything on a shoestring budget. He is investing in a 16 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa bio-digester to save more money, save the environment, and serve as an example within his community of how things can be done without having to resort to fossil fuels and expensive agro-chemical fertilizers.

His system will convert the abundant supply of manure produced by his dairy cows into renewable bio-gas and potent bio-fertilizer. His family will use the bio-gas in the Biobolsa stove included in the biodigester kit to replace the liquefied petroleum gas they currently use to cook and heat bathwater. José Luis will start using the bio-fertilizer to his plot to regenerate the soil and improve farm yields without spending money on fossil-fuel based fertilizers. This loan represents 47% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa bio-digester and two burner stove.
