A loan helped to purchase the ACE-1 hybrid energy system for cooking, lighting and charging in a way that is safer, cleaner and saves money.


Katiso's story

Katiso, 57, lives in a multi bedroom house with 3 children. Katiso relies on pension fund and struggles with buying multiple fuel and insufficient funds. He spends the most amount of his energy expenses on electricity, gas and paraffin, which costs up to LSL 746 per month. He also spends as much as 1 hour per day gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging. Katiso bought the ACE 1 cookstove to help him and his 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
