Wilson's story

Wilson is 29 years old. He is married and has two children. He and his wife earn their income through the sale of crops and livestock. They grow maize and coffee, and also keep cows and chickens.

Wilson 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, Wilson will pay school fees for his children. His biggest dream in life is to see his children finish university.
