Charles is 23 years old. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock. He grows maize, beans, rice, cassava and sweet potatoes. He also keeps chickens and pigs.
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.
