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.

Geofrey's story

Geofrey is 25 years old. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows cabbage, sweet potatoes, bananas, coffee and maize. He has cows, goats, chickens and pigs. He also keeps bees to produce honey.

Geofrey 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, Geofrey will invest in his beekeeping business. He dreams of owning his own dairy farm someday.
