Paul's story

Paul is 28 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, beans, coffee and groundnuts. They also have sheep, chickens and pigs.

Paul 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 money that he will earn as a CKW, Paul will buy farming supplies. He dreams of being able to purchase more land so that he can produce more crops and increase his family's income.
