Khutlela Group's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to purchase the ACE 1 energy system in order to have access to solar power for lighting, charging and cooking in a way that is safer, cleaner and saves money.

Khutlela Group's story

Thapelo is a 27-year-old man who lives in a two-bedroom house, without access to electricity, with one other family member. Thapelo relies on the small shop and struggles with insufficient income and buying multiple fuels.

He spends the most amount of his energy expenses on paraffin and gas, which costs up to LSL 72 per month. He also spends as much as one hour per day, gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging.

Thapelo and the other members of the group in this village each bought the ACE 1 cookstove 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 cookstove is biomass and solar powered.
