Medi's story

Medi is 44 years old. He is married and has six children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow bananas, maize, beans and coffee. They also have goats and chickens.

Medi 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, Medi will save to buy more land. His biggest dream in life is to be able to give all of his children a good education.
