Mika's story

Mika is 28 years old and married with two children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock as well as monthly compensation as a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). He grows maize, beans and coffee. He also has goats, chickens and pigs. Mika has served as a CKW for the last two years, and he looks forward to renewing his CKW contract for the next three years. 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 increase their incomes. With the additional money that he will earn as a CKW, Mika will improve his farming activities. His biggest dream in life is to become a sustainable and model farmer in his community.
