Remarks as prepared for Colin Dreizin
USAID Field Investment Officer
I am honored to be here with you today in support of the Kenya Union of Savings & Credit Co-operatives (KUSCCO), which is increasing access to cook stoves for Kenyan consumers through the “Jiko Safi” cook stove-specific credit facility.
Clean cook stoves reduce fuel consumption, reduce indoor air pollution, and improve efficiencies that ultimately save tens of thousands of Shillings per year for the average Kenyan household, as well as reducing health risks.
