Leopards Dec 7 Group's story

Elizabeth is a 40-year-old woman who lives with four other family members in a two-bedroom house that has access to electricity. She manages a business, but she struggles with paying for charcoal and other energy expenses. Elizabeth spends a total of 75,000 UGX on all of her fuel and electricity expenses.

She and the other members of her village group each purchased the ACE-1 cookstove to help their families save money every month on fuel. They will also be able to access solar electricity for charging their mobile devices anytime for free. The ACE-1 clean cookstove is powered by biomass and solar energy.
