John Bosco's story

John Bosco is 32 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through farming. They have a small shop where they sell the products that they grow. They grow maize and cassava. They also have cows 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 the shop that he and his wife own. He dreams of becoming a big businessman someday.
