Resty's story

Resty is 24 years old. She is married and has two children. She and her husband earn their income through farming. They grow maize, beans, cabbage, and sweet potatoes. They keep cows and goats. They also have a small commodities shop.

Resty 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 increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Resty will buy agricultural supplies. She dreams of having a well-organized future.
