Voka Group's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for the stove.

Voka Group's story

'Mahlompho is a 44-year-old woman married to a 48-year-old man. She has four children aged between 26 and 14, and she also has one grandchild. Her husband works in the South African mines.

'Mahlompho first saw the stove when a demonstration was held in her village, and she mobilised other people to buy. She says she needed the stove to help reduce the costs of paraffin and mobile phone charging. She spends around LSL 330 on paraffin for lighting, she also spends LSL 190 on LPG and LSL 100 on mobile phone charging.

With the arrival of this stove, she will save on fuel costs and mobile phone charging as the stove has a LED lamp, uses 70% less wood and has a port where she will charge her mobile phone.

'Mahlompho and the other people in the group have kindly requested a loan from Kiva lenders so that they can pay for the stove. This is their first loan with ACE.
