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

Fred's story

Fred is 25 years old. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize and coffee and also keeps chickens and pigs.

Fred 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, Fred will invest in his faming activities. His biggest dream is to someday purchase a water pump for his village so that everyone in his community has access to clean water.
