This paper looks at a project funded by the Intermediate Technology Development Group aimed at allowing more households in Western Kenya to have access to improved wood-burning stoves, while at the same time benefiting the women who produce them. The basic concept behind the project is to develop a commercial market for the stove. The paper looks at the difficulties facing the organizations involved in this venture, as the provision of stoves moves from a subsidized to a commercialized approach.
