Masaka, Uganda / Farming

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.


Betty's story

Betty is 26 years old. She is married and has two children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow beans and also keep pigs.

Betty 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, Betty will buy more pigs for her farm. Her biggest dream is to be able to purchase a piece of land where she could build a beautiful home for her family.
