COOK STOVE CHALLENGE; INDONESIA

Improved cook stoves.
Learn more about the Cook Stove Challenge and how clean cook stoves reduce health and safety risks, lower fuel expenses, and help reduce poverty.
DISTRIBUTION MODEL INNOVATION
MASIH will distribute clean cook stoves and provide affordable financing options to help rural Indonesian communities shift away from open wood burning. The team offers two payment options: (1) a small upfront fee paired with installment payments corresponding to crop cycle, or (2) subsidized rates for households paying in full.
Additionally, MASIH will hold workshops in the pilot region to increase knowledge of the negative health impacts of open wood burning and demand for alternatives. In areas where alternative cooking fuel options are still scarce, MASIH will find local suppliers to ensure that supply will not be a bottleneck. They will work with local leaders for community monitoring and maintenance of products.
