Micro-Finance Jumpstart

A dramatic, un-anticipated, benefit – our program of asking people to make a contribution to the stove cost (with the money remaining in the community) so that they have a sense of ownership and commitment to their stove, has evolved, in many communities, into a community-administered micro-finance program.

So in addition to providing health and environmental benefits, we’ve become a catalyst to the empowerment of the community and are helping to make it more financially sustainable.
