Vicent's story

Vincent is 27 years old, and is married with one child. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans and coffee. They also have chickens and pigs.

Vincent wants to become a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the tools in his business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scales) 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, Vincent will invest in exotic livestock breeds in order to grow his farming business. He dreams of helping the youth of his village to learn about farming.
