Ha Seotsanyane 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.

Ha Seotsanyane Group's story

'Matieho is a 42-year-old woman married to a 49-year-old man. She has two children aged 24 and 20. Her homestead is a combination of traditional huts built with sandstone, and there is no electricity. Apart from being a crop farmer she is also a businesswoman who has a shack selling paraffin and other essentials in her village. She was reluctant to buy the ACE1 stove at first as she thought it will affect her business, especially paraffin, but as time went on she decided to get one to improve her life. She says the stove is going to help her save some money as she was also spending a lot on paraffin to heat and light her home. She was also paying a lot to charge her phone.

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