Meet Betty Ikalany. Betty is the founder and CEO of AEST, a social enterprise that is creating transformational job opportunities for women in Uganda. Through the Alliance’s Women’s Empowerment Fund, Betty and AEST expanded production capacity, purchased new machinery, and strengthened their distribution network by training 55 new micro-entrepreneurs. Together, we created new jobs for women, improved the environment through cleaner fuels, and reduced smoke in the homes of families throughout Uganda. Betty is confident, dedicated, and changing the world by helping families in her community gain access to cleaner cookstoves and fuels.
