Milly's story

Milly is 33 years old. She is married and has five children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize and coffee. They also keep chickens and pigs.

Milly looks forward to becoming a community knowledge worker (CKW). As a CKW, she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes. She is very happy about having the opportunity to assist the poorest members of her community by giving them valuable information updates.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Milly will invest in her farming business.
