Agnes's story

Agnes is 27 years old. She is married and has four children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize, beans and groundnuts. They also have chickens and pigs.

Agnes looks forward to becoming a community knowledge worker (CKW). As a CKW, she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Agnes will grow her farming business. She dreams of being able to give her family better living conditions.
