Peninah's story

Peninah is 27 years old. She has one child. She earns her income through farming. She grows maize and also keeps chickens and pigs.

Peninah looks forward to becoming a community knowledge worker (CKW). As a CKW, she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Peninah will save to buy more chickens. She dreams of having a large, very successful poultry business.
