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.


Josephine's story

Josephine is 25 years old. She is married and has one child. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize and sweet potatoes and also raise pigs. They also have a small shop where they sell commodities.

Josephine 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, Josephine will invest in her farming business. She dreams of having a 5-acre maize plantation.
