Simeon's story

Simeon is 30 years old. He earns his income through farming. He grows beans and also keeps cows.

Simeon 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, Simeon will invest in his farm. He dreams of developing his farm into a very successful business.
