Teo is 41 years old. She is married and has six children. She and her husband earn money through farming. They grow coffee, groundnuts, bananas and sweet potatoes. They also keep goats, sheep, chickens and pigs.

Teo 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 scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village. This will help them improve their crop yields and increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Teo will pay school fees for her children. She dreams of seeing her children receive a high level of education.

More information about this loan

This loan is part of Grameen Foundation's AppLab program and Community Knowledge Worker initiative, providing borrowers with mobile phones, solar chargers and other equipment to become knowledge centers for their smallholder farming communities. 

With these tools, community knowledge workers can help their neighbors access information and advice to improve their crop yields, connect with markets and generate more income. They can also conduct mobile surveys to help local organizations better meet farmers' needs. Community knowledge workers make monthly salaries based on the number of surveys they collect, enabling them to repay Grameen for the equipment.
