Andrew's story

Andrew is 29 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, coffee, groundnuts and bananas. They also have pigs.

Andrew 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 weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional income that Andrew earns as a CKW, he will purchase supplies to expand his farming business. He dreams of being able to purchase all the agriculture supplies that he needs.
