Damalie is a mother of three. She owns a small business that sells tomatoes and maize in the evenings. Her neighbor Dan, who works at EUF (one of Impact Carbon's manufacturing partners of improved cookstoves), introduced her to the benefits of improved cookstoves and she invested in one a year ago. She used to spend 1,000 UGX (€0.26) a day on charcoal and now uses the same quantity of charcoal for 2-3 days. This saves her up to 75%! She uses the savings to pay for her children’s school fees and investing in her business. Because the stove saves time on cooking, she is able to spend more time to attend to her business. Given the many benefits of using an improved cookstove, she has no regrets about her purchase decision.
