David's story

David is 28 years old. He is married and has seven children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans, cassava, bananas, groundnuts and peas. They raise cows, goats, sheep and chickens. They also have a small shop.

David 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, David plans to pay school fees for his children. He dreams of being a model farmer for his community.
