Henry's story

Henry is 32 years old. He is married and has one child. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans and coffee. They also have cows, goats, chickens and pigs.

Henry 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, Henry will save for the house he would like to build. His biggest dream is to open up a veterinary pharmacy in his village, so that the farmers in his community have access to the medicine they need in order to keep their animals healthy.
