Alice's story

Alice is 30 years old. She is married and has four children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize, beans, coffee, and cassava. They also keep cows and pigs.

Alice 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, Alice will pay school fees for her children. She dreams of becoming an agriculture specialist.
