Abstract

La Escuela Agrícola is a self-sustainable school located in Paraguay. It was developed to help the rural youth develop skills to rise out of poverty. The team sought to accomplish two projects working in parallel to benefit the school’s self-sustainable mission. The first project was the evaluation and construction of a biodigester system. The biodigester reduces the school’s energy costs by producing biogas. The second project was to determine the feasibility of a bakery business. The team determined that a bakery could be feasible, but an in-depth market analysis should be conducted.
