Amos's story

Amos is 30 years old. He is married and has four children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans, cassava and bananas. They also have cows, goats and sheep.

Amos 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, Amos will pay school fees for his children. He dreams of being able to have the capital and expertise to have the best breeds of animals on his farm.
