Catherine'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.

Catherine's story

Catherine is a 30-year-old woman who lives in a multi-bedroom house with access to electricity and with 3 other family members. She is a business woman but struggles with charcoal energy expenses. She spends a total of UGX 70,000 on all of her fuels and electricity expenses. Catherine is buying the ACE One to help her and her family 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.
