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

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.

Courageous Group's story

Mampoetsi is a 48-year-old woman who lives in a multi-bedroom house, without access to electricity, with two other family members, including two children.

Mampoetsi relies on her grocery store profits and struggles with buying multiple kinds of fuel. She spends most of her energy expenses on gas and paraffin, which cost up to 525 LSL per month. She also spends as much as one hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs, like phone charging.

Mampoetsi 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 to 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.
