A loan of $1,700 helped to purchase a Sistema Biobolsa biodigester and biogas stove.


Zabdiel's story

Zabdiel, a dairy farmer from Mexico State, wants to improve farming in his region. He is investing in a 25 cubic meter Sistema Biobolsa in order to use it as a technology demonstrator with the goal of promoting anaerobic digestion, the use of biomass energy, and biofertilizer production in his region.

His digester will convert cow manure into renewable biogas, displacing firewood and propane currently used to cook and heat bathwater. Concurrently, the system will generate a potent soil amendment, allowing Zabdiel to improve crop yields without having to spend on expensive agrochemical fertilizers. This loan represents 42% of the total cost of his Sistema Biobolsa biodigester and biogas stove.
