Peruth's story

Peruth is 24 years old. She is married and has two children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize, beans, coffee, cassava and bananas. They keep cows, goats and pigs. They also have a small commodities shop.

Peruth 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, Peruth will invest in her farm. She is very glad to have this opportunity to help her village.
