MPERERWE-TULA, UGANDA.

Hanifah is responsible for cooking food for her husband and son. She owns two stoves: an improved cookstove and a clay cookstove. Although she bought the clay stove first, she rarely uses it because it consumes a lot of charcoal. She now relies primarily on her improved cookstove which she has had for the last two years. The stove is saving her a lot of money on charcoal: before she spent 10,000 UGX (€2.59) per week, and now she spends only 5,000 UGX (€1.29) every week. With an entrepreneurial mind, Hanifah says: “I invest all the savings I get from charcoal into my business to enable it to become bigger. In the future, I want to own a proper retail shop”
