Nasiwa has been using an improved cookstove for the last four years. She states, “I am able to attend to other home chores because of my improved cook stove’’, citing time-saving benefits of her efficient stove. The stove has helped Sarah save daily on charcoal: she previously used 4,000UGX (US$1.21) on charcoal per day to prepare food for six people using a traditional ceramic stove. Currently she’s only spending about 1,000UGX (US$0.30) per day. Big savings!
