John's story

John is 25 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 cassava. They also have cows, goats, chickens, pigs and rabbits.

John 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 will invest in a tailoring business that he would like to start. He dreams of being a model farmer for his community and training them to be the best farmers that they can be, helping them to improve their standards of living.
