Makamohelo'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 hybrid energy system for cooking, lighting and charging in a way that is safer, cleaner and saves money.

Makamohelo's story

Makamohelo is a 34-year-old woman who lives in a traditional hut without access to electricity. She lives with 5 other family members including 2 children. Makamohelo works as a civil servant but struggles with buying fuel. She spends the most amount of her energy expenses on paraffin, which costs up to LSL200 per month. She also spends as much as 1 hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging. Makamohelo bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help her and her family save the money spent 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
