Clean energy entrepreneurs create a brisk trade in Uganda

KAMPALA, Uganda -- Farooq Kiryowa's cookstove manufacturing plant lies down a narrow slum road in this city's impoverished Kakungulu neighborhood, where under tin-roofed tenements women and children toil in heat, dust and squalor as Kampala's permanent underclass. Kiryowa is producing between 2,000 and 3,000 improved cookstoves per month with a staff of 29 laborers. He sells the stoves, which require half the charcoal and emit far less smoke than conventional stoves, for between 15,000 and 30,000 shillings ($6 to $12) per unit. That makes him an unqualified business success in a section of Kampala where success -- at least in Western terms -- is almost never achieved.
