Jamilu's story

Jamilu is 25 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize and beans, and also keep goats and chickens.

Jamilu 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, Jamilu will pay school fees for his children and invest in his farm. He dreams of seeing his children receive a good education and living in happiness with his family in a nice home.
