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

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

Story Teller Group's story

Masepinare is a 52-year-old woman who lives in a multi-bedroom house with three children. Masepinare works as a civil servant but struggles with buying multiple fuel. She spends the largest amount of her energy expenses on electricity, paraffin and gas, which cost up to LSL 635 per month. She also spends as much as one hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging.

Masepinare and the other member 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. For more information on the ACE 1 cookstove please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy
