Thakane'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.

Thakane's story

Thakane is a 24-year-old woman who lives in a multi-bedroom house, without access to electricity, with ten other family members, including one child. She relies on self-employment and struggles with insufficient income.

Thakane spends as much as one hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs, like phone charging. Thakane has bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help her and her family save the money spent every month on fuel and also to access solar electricity for charging their mobile devices any time for free.

The ACE 1 clean cookstove is biomass- and solar-powered. For more information on the ACE1 cookstove, please visit www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy.
