Cheetahs 4 Feb 2021 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 One 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.

Cheetahs 4 Feb 2021 Group's story

Shifa is a 45 year old woman who lives in a multi-bedroom house, with access to electricity, with 8 other family members. Shifa relies on business and struggles with charcoal energy expenses. She spends a total of UGX 120,000 on all of her fuels and electricity expenses. Shifa and the other members of the group in this village each bought the ACE One 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 One clean cookstove is biomass and solar powered. For more information on the ACE One cookstove please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy.
