Kasambandola Group

Lundazi, Eastern Province, Zambia / Personal Use

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

A loan helped to purchase a solar lighting system, a clean cookstove, and a subscription of biomass pellet fuel that will help reduce deforestation.

Kasambandola Group's story

Arron is a 65-year-old man who lives in a rural eastern part of Zambia. He enjoys gardening and reading. He is married and has 10 children; some go to school while some are working. Farming has been his source of income, and he has been farming for over 30years.

Arron and the other members of Kasambandola Group are each buying a cookstove that comes with a supply of clean-burning fuel pellets. By using fuel pellets instead of firewood or charcoal for cooking, they will be helping to address the problem of rapid deforestation in their community. Four members are also purchasing home solar systems for lighting and phone charging.
