      The massive use of wood charcoal and firewood by Beninese households causes deforestation and many respiratory diseases. Moreover, the low electrification rate in the country is a barrier to development. From 2017, Almighty Services Plus started production of the green charcoal ‘’GANKAN’’, from agricultural residues. In 2019, they plan to start production of clean cookstoves and launch a reforestation campaign. These products are cleaner, safer, and cheaper, while looking similar to the products people are used to.
