Henry's story

Henry is 44 years old. He is married and has seven children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans, rice, cassava, potatoes, bananas, and coffee. They also have chickens and pigs. Henry 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, Henry will save to buy more land. His biggest dream in life is to see all of his children receive a university education.
