George's story

George is 29 years old. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize, beans, coffee, groundnuts and bananas. He keeps cows, goats and pigs. He also earns money by producing and selling bricks and charcoal. George 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, George will save for the home that he would like to build. He dreams of someday owning a vehicle.
