A loan helped to pay for a stove.

Black Group's story

'Mabakoena is a 55-year-old widow with one child aged 28. Her homestead is comprised of separated traditional Sesotho huts built with sandstone and mud, thatched with grass. She is a teacher by profession.

'Mabakoena bought the ACE1 stove to help her with her cell phone charging and light her huts as she has no access to electricity. She says the stove will reduce her expenses, especially on paraffin used for lighting. Moreover, it will save her time as she will now prepare her meals more quickly.

'Mabakoena and the other women in the group have requested a loan from Kiva lenders so that they can pay for the stoves.
