KAMPALA, UGANDA: Christine started using an improved cookstove two years ago. She encountered a discussion with her neighbor who explained the kind of savings they could experience. She was quickly convinced this would be of benefit to her family. Her husband runs a tailoring business from their home and soon discovered the impact it had on his business. Using less charcoal with improved cookstoves meant more money could be used for business expenses. In addition to monetary savings, they also found more time to focus on their business and care for their children.
