Asuman's story

Asuman is 27 years old. He is married and has three children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of livestock. They keep cows, goats and pigs. Asuman 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, Asuman will save money for the veterinary medicine shop that he would like to open in his village. He would also like to purchase an artificial insemination kit to support his livestock business. He would like to accomplish these goals by 2015.
