Patrick's story

Patrick is 26 years old. He has two children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize, beans, cassava and bananas. He also keeps cows, goats and sheep.

Patrick 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, Patrick will invest in new animal breeds in order to increase the productivity of his farm. He dreams of opening a business that will help him to provide agricultural supplies to his village.
