Energy Efficiency reduces enterprise vulnerability: the case of Taho production in the Philippines.
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.
