Margaret is a proud owner of two improved cook stoves she obtained in 2017 and March 2018. She uses one sack of charcoal worthy 37,000 UGX (€8.22) for a month. In the past, the same sack used to last two weeks before she acquired improved cook stoves. She is therefore able to save 37,000 UGX (€8.22) every month. Savings are used to cover medical bills and to buy essentials at home. Since she cooks inside the house, she finds the stove friendly because they emit less smoke and they are not hot.
