Esther is a mother of two and a fairly recent beneficiary of our fuel-efficient cookstove.

She has to buy firewood as it is very scarce where she lives. To be able to buy the firewood she grows groundnuts.

Each week Esther would spend around 9,000MK but since receiving her fuel-efficient cookstove in 2022, now only spends 3,000MK on firewood.

She said “I am very happy as the money I can now save to buy food and to pay into the school development fund.”
