Gonzaga's story

Gonzaga is 36 years old. He is married and has three children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, coffee, cassava and bananas. They also keep chickens and pigs.

Gonzaga 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, Gonzaga will invest in his agriculture business. He dreams of being a model farmer for his community.
