A loan helped to pay for a stove.

Lebotho Group's story

Nthabeleng is a 32-year-old woman who is married to a 35-year-old man. She has one child aged eight. She lives in a single-roomed home without electricity. She owns a small shop in the village. She spends a lot of money on fuel, especially paraffin and LPG, mainly for cooking and heating her home. When she wants to save on the fuel, she collects wood, thus closing her shop as she walks long distances to collect it. When she heard about the ACE1 stove and how it could help her reduce fuel costs, she decided to get one; with this stove she won't struggle to charge her mobile phone anymore as there is a port for mobile phone charging, she will also light her home using the LED lamp that comes with the stove, thus saving on paraffin, moreover, she will cook using less wood and without smoke.

Nthabeleng and the other people in the group have kindly requested a loan from Kiva lenders to pay for the stove, which they say will change their lives.
