Cooks 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.

Cooks Group's story

Kotsoane is a 58-year-old man who lives in a multi-bedroom house with four other family members including two children. Kotsoane works as a civil servant but struggles with buying multiple fuels. He spends the most amount of his energy expenses on electricity, paraffin and gas, which cost up to LSL320 per month. He also spends as much as one hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging.

Kotsoane 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 cook-stove is biomass and solar powered.
