A loan of $325 helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and weighing scale so that she may provide vital farming information to her community.

Rebecca's story

Rebecca is 30 years old. She is married and has four children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow many different crops, including maize, beans, coffee, vegetables, groundnuts, bananas and sweet potatoes. They also keep goats, chickens and pigs.

Rebecca 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, Rebecca will save for the house that she would like to build with her husband. Her biggest dream is to have a nice home.
