Thadeus's story

Thadeus is 32 years old. He is married with seven children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans and cassava. They also have cows and chickens.

Thadeus 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, Thadeus will save to buy more dairy cows to increase his family's income. He dreams of seeing all of his children receive a university education. He would like to be a model farmer for his community.
