Haseapi 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 ACE 1 cook stove to gain access to electricity for extra lighting at night, for charging her mobile device and to save money spent on fuel.

Haseapi Group's story

Malethola is a 60-year-old hardworking widow. She is a domestic worker in the neighbouring village. She lives with her four grandchildren and five other family members in separated huts.

She depends mainly on an open fire means of cooking and gathering firewood is a challenge sometimes, especially during rainy days. Malethola says she also spends LSL 120 on paraffin for lighting and sometimes for cooking.

Malethola and two other ladies in her village say they travel a long distance to get their mobile device charged as well as gathering cooking fuel. They say the ACE 1 cook stove is going to help them save a lot of money that they spend on energy and the time they spend to gather cooking fuel or even getting their mobile devices charged. The ACE 1 clean cook stove is biomass and solar powered.
