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.

Nthatuoa's story

Nthatuoa is a 22-year-old woman who lives in a one-bedroom house with two other family members. She relies on family support and struggles with an incompetent income and buying multiple fuels.

She spends the most amount of her energy expenses on electricity and paraffin, which costs up to LSL 150 per month. She also spends as much as an hour per day, gathering fuel and fulfilling other energy needs like phone charging. Nthatuoa bought the ACE 1 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 1 clean cookstove is biomass and solar-powered.
