Abel's story

Abel is 29 years old and has one child. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize, beans, cassava, and bananas. He also keeps cows and goats.

Abel 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, Abel will save money so that he can go back to school. He dreams of becoming an electrical engineer.
