Musa's story

Musa is a 28-year-old farmer and married father of two children. He grows maize, beans, coffee and bananas. He also tends to chickens and pigs. Musa looks forward to becoming a community knowledge worker (CKW) so he can help to control pests and diseases on farms in his village. 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, Musa will expand his farm, which is his biggest dream for the future.
