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

A loan helped to save money spent on fuel, to use the ACE 1 cook stove to gain access to electricity for extra lighting at night and for charging mobile device.

Dichomza Group's story

Mapule is a 57 year old woman who lives in a multi-bedroom house with 2 other family members, including 1 grandchild. Mapule works as a preschool owner but struggles with personal savings. She spends the most amount of her energy expenses on electricity, which costs up to M350 per month.

She also spends as much as 2 hours per day, gathering fuel. Mapule and the group in this village bought the ACE 1 cook stove to help them save the money they spend every month on fuel and also help them access solar electricity for charging their mobile devices any time for free. The ACE 1 clean cook-stove is biomass and solar powered. For more information on the ACE1 cook stove please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy.
