Shadreck's story

Shadreck is a 34 years old chef at a sports center for young Zambians. He is married with 3 children, who all are in school. The youngest is in a school for children with special needs, which is hard on his finances. His wife handles bookings in a hotel. His dream is to become independent and build a business, preferably on his own piece of property in the future. Shadreck is also a gospel musician and performs together with his oldest daughter. The loan will help him buy a stock of improved stoves and biomass pellets, which together replace charcoal. He will then sell them and start building towards his dream. He is also motivated to be apart of the fight against deforestation and he loves teaching people about that as well as introducing chefs to a sustainable way of cooking.
