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.

Rehema's story

Rehema is 40 years old. She is married and has ten children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize, beans, cassava, vegetables, avocados and coffee. They also keep cows, goats and chickens. They also earn money from the small commodities shop that they have, as well as through daily labor jobs that they perform for others in the community.

Rehema 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, Rehema will support her children. Her biggest dreams include building a nice home and seeing her children receive an education at the university level.
