Julius's story

Julius is 26 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through farming. They grow and sell coffee beans. They also keep pigs.

Julius 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, Julius will invest in his farming business.
