Title: Simplest Solar Cookers and Women's Micro-Enterprise
Author: Margaret Owino
Date: July 2006 (Presented at the Solar Cookers and Food Processing International Conference in Granada, Spain)
Abstract: Solar cooking promotes self-sufficiency through income generation and/or fuelwood savings for families. Households that cook with the sun report that the money they save is used to for many other purposes, such as extra food, school supplies, medications, and cooking fuel for times when the sun is not shining. Several local women will benefit doubly from time for additional income generation in addition to fuelwood savings at home. For those who choose to sell solar cookers, this activity can be done flexibly, within women’s many other tasks, on a scale that suits the interest of the businessperson. Other business opportunities include making, distributing, retailing and maintaining solar cookers, training others, providing after sales services, and selling solar cooked foods. All these are possible only because of the CooKit, the world’s simplest most affordable solar cooker.
