Remegio's story

Remegio is 37 years old. He is married and has five children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans, coffee, cassava and sweet potatoes. They keep cows, goats and pigs. They also have a small shop where they sell commodities.

Remegio 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, Remegio will grow his farming business. He dreams of constructing a nice house for his family to live in.
