Joseph's story

Joseph is 25 years old. He earns his income through farming. He grows maize, beans, coffee and cassava. He also has goats.

Joseph 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, Joseph will buy supplies to grow his farming business.
