The DFID KaR research project on \"Enabling Urban Poor Policy Making: Understanding the Role of Energy Services\" produced a number of success stories of how poor women's micro-enterprises using energy-efficient technologies helped reduce their families' vulnerability to economic shocks. This is the story of Aling Nena from the Philippines and her Taho factory. Taho is a nutritious food made from soft soybean curd in syrup however the production is very energy intensive. Use of improved cook stoves made the enterprise more efficient.
Energy Efficiency reduces enterprise vulnerability: the case of Taho production in the Philippines.
