Sylvia's story

Sylvia is 29 years old. She is married and has three children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow coffee and also keep pigs.

Sylvia 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, Sylvia will buy agricultural supplies. She dreams of increasing the productivity of her farm so that she can improve her family's standard of living.
