Khokhotsi 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.

Khokhotsi Group's story

Malineo is a 50 year old woman who lives in a separated hut without access to electricity with 5 other family members including 2 children. Malineo relies on street vending and struggles with buying multiple fuels and unreliable income. She spends the most amount of her energy expenses on gas and paraffin, which costs up to LSL 420 per month. She also spends as much as 1hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging.

Malineo and the other members of the group in this village each bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help them save 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.
