Teo's story

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.
