Justa Stove Assessment by Owners

We took the opportunity in La Mantanita to get some feedback from the owners of the new Justa Stoves. At this point, 11 have been constructed,almost all by the villagers. We visited 7 of the installations. All of the women were extremely happy with  their stoves. They loved the larger grill, consistent heating, using signifiantly less wood than previously, and most of all – no smoke in the house. One man said he spent all his time gathering wood, but not now. Another woman said one piece of wood lasted all day. The praises went on and on. The next big test is to track the reduction in respiratory problems.
