Emmanuel's story

Emmanuel is 25 years old. He is married and has one child. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, coffee and bananas. They also have cows, goats and chickens.

Emmanuel 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, Emmanuel will save to buy more animals. He dreams of building a secondary school in his village.
