Angella's story

Angella is 25 years old and single, staying with her parents. She earns her income through the sale of crops, livestock, and receiving monthly compensation as a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). Community Knowledge Workers are trusted community members, who provide agricultural data and advice to rural farmers in their local area including information about the weather, market prices, crop diseases and agricultural tools. On her family's land Angella grows maize, beans, ground nuts, and millet. She also has chicken.

Angella has served as a CKW for the last two years and she looks forward to renewing her CKW contract for the next three years. 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 increase their incomes.

With the additional money she will earn as a CKW, Angella plans to buy her own piece of land for farming. Her biggest dream in life is to establish a community support organization empowering vulnerable children and women in her community.
