Scaling the LivelyHoods Kenya Model in Western Kenya

Over the course of 12 months, LivelyHoods will scale its proven clean energy product distribution and job creation model into the heavily populated but underpenetrated market of western Kenya. LivelyHoods will grow its operations by 50% by establishing one regional distribution hub in Kisumu and five additional branches throughout surrounding towns and cities. Clean cookstove penetration in Kenya’s urban areas is approximately 14.3%, highlighting the opportunity to distribute thousands of clean cookstoves throughout peri-urban and urban communities. Clean cookstoves benefit both families and the environment through fuel-savings and reduced black carbon and carbon dioxide emissions.
