A loan of $325 helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and scale so that he may provide vital farming information to his community.

Patrick's story

Patrick is 24 years old. He is married and has one child.

He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. Specifically, they grow coffee, cassava and mangos; they also have goats, chickens and pigs.

Patrick looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will be able to use materials from his "business-in-a-box" (a smartphone, solar charging set and 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 expects to earn as a CKW, Patrick would like to buy agricultural supplies. His biggest dream in life is for his family to be happy.
