A loan helped a member to pay for a stove.


Kenny's Group's story

Makutloano is a 44 year old woman with two children, aged between 22 and 20. She stays in a two room house with electricity, and is a teacher in one of the local schools. Makutloano says she spends a lot of money on electricity, as she uses it for cooking, heating, and lighting. So, she decided to purchase the ACE1 stove in order to reduce her fuel costs. With this stove, she will cook, heat, and light one of her rooms.

Makutloano and the other people in the group have kindly requested a loan from Kiva lenders so that they can pay for the stove.
