A loan of $325 helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and weighing scale so that he may provide vital farming information to his community.

Williams's story

Williams is 27 years old. He is married and has one child. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize and beans and keep cows and pigs. They also have a small transport business.

Williams looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional money that he will earn as a CKW, Williams will save to buy another cow. He dreams of having a large dairy farm with Friesian cows.
