A loan helped to pay for a stove.

Iponeng Group's story

Matatollo is a 40-year-old woman married to a 47-year-old man. She has two children, 21 and 6. She lives in a multi-roomed house with no electricity. She does not work but depends on her husband's income.

The main reason she bought the ACE1 stove was to save on her fuel and mobile phone charging, especially LPG and paraffin. She spends around LSL 50 on paraffin and LSL 180 on LPG monthly, while spending LSL 90 on mobile phone charging.

With the ACE1 stove she is bound to see a significant reduction in her fuel expenses as the stove uses readily available wood. She will also use the LED lamp to light her home. Moreover, the stove has a port to charge her phone.

Matatollo and the other women in the group have kindly requested a loan from Kiva lenders to pay for the stove.
