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

A loan helped to purchase an ACE-1 Cookstove energy system in order to have access to solar power for lighting, charging and cooking in a way that is safer, cleaner and saves money.

Phal's story

Phal is 20 years old and lives in a two bedroom house, with access to electricity, with his mother and two younger brothers. He works as a primary school teacher but struggles with charcoal, gas, wood and energy expenses. He spends a total of 35 USD per month on of his fuel and electricity expenses.

Phal bought the ACE-1 Cookstove to help his family save the money they spend every month on fuel and to help them access solar electricity for charging their mobile devices at any time and for free.

The ACE-1 Cookstove is biomass and solar powered. For more information on the ACE-1 Cookstove, please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy.
