KAMPALA, UGANDA - Adrine has been in business for the last 5 years. Since starting she has been using her UgaStove improved cook stove to prepare food for 25 people daily (Matooke, potatoes, beans, meat). Adrine says that she still saves at least half the cost of the charcoal using her improved cook stoves. “I used to spend 7,000 Shillings ($2.30) everyday on charcoal, but with these stoves I spend half of that amount," she comments about her daily expenses. Working in crapped conditions, Adrine likes how the stoves don’t give off much heat making it bearable to cook more in her small shack.
