A loan of $325 helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and weighing scale so that she may provide vital farming information to her community.

Jane's story

Jane is 25 years old. She is married and has one child. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize, beans and coffee. They also keep goats, chickens and pigs.

Jane looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Jane will buy supplies for her pig stable. She dreams of owning a big piece of land where she would build a nice-looking house.
