Stephen's story

Stephen is 30 years old. He is married and has five children. He and his wife earn money through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans and coffee. They also keep cows and chickens.

Stephen looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village. This information will help them to improve their crop yields and increase their incomes.

With the additional money that he will earn as a CKW, Stephen will buy agricultural supplies. He dreams of giving all of his children a good education.
