Charles's story

Charles is 27 years old. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize, beans, groundnuts and coffee. He also keeps cows, goats and chickens.

Charles 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, Charles will save to buy more land. He dreams of improving his standard of living.
