Deus's story

Deus is 35 years old. He is married and has six children. He and his wife earn their income through farming. They grow bananas, sweet potatoes, onions, cabbage, groundnuts, beans, cassava and coffee. They also have cows, goats, pigs and chickens.

Deus 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, Deus will invest in his farming business. He would like to become a true agricultural expert with a successful farming enterprise.
