You may be thinking of the Ugastove
Earlier stoves like the jikos (KCJ), upesis's Mbaula or Mandaleo's are
probably made and sold in an entrepreneurial mode.
I have the impression that there are cultural or organizational traditions
in South Asia that make it easier to make especially ceramic stoves at the
village or individual level.

I think you would have to consider the MJA Biomass Gas stove to be
entrepreneurial unless you put it in a manufactured class with the Save80,
Stovetec Rockets, Philips, Oorja (BP), Envirofit, Woodgas, Ecofogon,
These stoves really become "appliances" that would be manufactured and sold
with other housedhold products.
Is the MCS charcoal stove being made by an entrepreneurs?

I think there are a few.
Malawi has one making mostly institutional Rocket Stoves that are sold
mostly to WFP (does that count?).
The Ugandan producer (sorry to have not noted his name nearby) is making
scads of money by selling at a commercial price and collecting CO2 money
that is more than the selling price. Nice product. Have pics. I do not know
who the buyers are though.
The Parasafe Stove is I think at the commercially viable level. Some are
sold with a subsidy and other are not. Sales are doing well I hear.
The Vesto sells at a viable level. I don't think it would stand on its own
as a single product. It is part of a range of products. The customers are in
the 'unsupported' class about half the time I would guess. Quite a number
are given to child-headed households.
How about Samson's concrete stove in Ethiopia? I thought that was doing
Just a few...
