John Bosco's story

John Bosco is 29 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, beans and coffee. They also have chickens and pigs.

John Bosco 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, John Bosco will invest in poultry units. He dreams of seeing his farming business expand so that he will be able to generate more income for his family.
