Woman Entrepreneurship Series: How Technology Can Offer Solutions in a Time of Social Distancing
Seven years ago, Nigeria’s clean cooking industry was both smaller and more male-dominated than today. But that didn’t stop entrepreneur Happy Amos from founding her own cookstove manufacturing company. Since starting Roshan Global Services in 2013, Amos, who is also the Managing Director of the company, has sold over 20,000 “Happy Stove” cookstoves. Amos has recruited more than 60 women as sales agents across Northern Nigeria and has trained over 350 women, including refugees, on the negative impacts of cooking with fuels like wood, charcoal, and animal dung.
