James's story

James is 34 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize and beans and also keep cows and goats.

James 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, James will invest in hen rearing activities. He dreams of helping to develop the schools in his community.
