Abdallah-Aziiz's story

Abdallah-Aziiz is 33 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 bananas. They also keep cows, goats and chickens.

Abdallah-Aziiz 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, Abdallah-Aziiz will invest in his farming business. His biggest dream is to convert his small-scale farm into a large-scale commercial farm, and to be a prosperous farmer who serves as a role model for his neighbors.
