Nibirose 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.

Nibirose Group's story

Malebohang is a 58-year-old woman who lives in separated huts without access to electricity with 6 other family members, including 4 children. Malebohang relies on commercial farming and struggles with buying fuel, and she has incompetent income.

She spends most of her energy expenses on mobile phone charging, paraffin, and gas, which costs up to 331 LSL per month. She also spends as much as 1 hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging.

Malebohang 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. For more information on the ACE1 cook stove please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy
