Joseph's story

Joseph is 35 years old. He is married and has three children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize, beans and coffee. They also keep cows.

Joseph 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, Joseph will save to buy more land. He dreams of increasing the size of his farm.
