Matlotliso's story

Matlotliso is a 38-year-old woman who lives in a one-bedroom house, without access to electricity, with 8 other family members including 5 children. Matlotliso relies on self-employment and struggles with buying multiple fuel and insufficient income. She spends the most amount of her energy expenses on paraffin and wood, which costs up to LSL180 per month. She also spends as much as 1 hour per day, gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging. Matlotliso bought the ACE One cookstove to help her and her 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 One clean cook-stove is biomass and solar-powered. For more information on the ACE One cook stove please visit: www.africancleanenergy.com and Facebook @African Clean Energy
