Fedde's story

Fedde is a 42-year-old farmer and mother of four children. She grows maize and beans, and tends to her cows.

Fedde looks forward to becoming a community knowledge worker (CKW) so she can serve fellow farmers in her community. As a CKW, she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone, solar charging set and weighing scale) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and to increase their incomes.

With the additional money that she will earn as a CKW, Fedde hopes to improve her farming business. She dreams of being able to provide better access to information for farmers in her village.
