Matseko'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.

Matseko's story

Matseko is a 67-year-old woman who lives in a two bedroom house, without access to electricity, with 3 other family members, including 3 children.

Matseko relies on self-employment and struggles with buying multiple fuels and insufficient income. She spends the most amount of her energy expenses on candles, which costs up to LSL17 per month. She also spends as much as one hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging.

Matseko bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help her and her family save the money spent every month on fuel and also to 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.
