A loan of $1,175 helped to buy a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester and biogas stove.


Claudio Ricardo's story

Claudio is a hog farmer in an urban zone. This makes him very unpopular with his neighbors; the smells and flies emanating from his sty are unpleasant, to say the least. However, Claudio and his family have been farming in the same location for generations and would like to continue doing so.

With his 10 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa biodigester, he will be able to effectively treat the pig waste, reducing flies and odors but also earning him two resources: methane-rich, renewable biogas and organic biofertilizer. In addition to increasing harmony with his neighbors, the digester will save him money on energy and fertilizer, displacing propane and agrochemical fertilizer.

This loan represents 47% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester and biogas stove.
