Smokeless Stove: Ana Isabel Tuy

Ana is a single mother of three boys, Luis (17), Jesús (7) and Juan (5). They live in a rural community in Sololá, Guatemala and share a little house with her parents.

Before partnering with Habitat Guatemala to receive a new stove, Ana’s family used to cook on her mother’s stove, sharing it with the rest of the relatives. “Now I feel happy, because I have my own stove. I can make my tortillas and cook my food,” she continues, “the old one used so much wood, but this one does not need much at all.”

“I have many good memories with the volunteers. They left the name of my sons written on the stove. Thank you all for your support,” says Ana while remembering the volunteers who came to help build.”
