commercially, and so stimulate both demand and production levels. On the commercial market, the price
of a stove includes full production costs plus a profit margin for producers, distributors, wholesalers,
retailers and installers. An Upesi stove now costs between KShs 100 and KShs 150 (approximately £2).
This is slightly less than the price of a chicken. The market has grown significantly, which is a good sign
that the Upesi meets the needs of its users for a clean, efficient, fast-cooking stove.
