A loan of $275 helped to purchase a mobile phone, solar charging set and weighing scale so that he may provide vital farming information to his community.

Moses's story

Moses is 29 years old and is not married yet. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock and earns a monthly wage as a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). Community Knowledge Workers are trusted community members who provide agricultural data and advice, including information about the weather, market prices, crop diseases and agricultural tools, to rural farmers in their local area.

On his land, Moses grows maize, beans, coffee, cassava, potatoes, passion fruit, bananas and onions. He also has some cows and chickens.

As a CKW, Moses will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (a smartphone, a solar charging set, and a 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 he will earn as a CKW, Moses will invest in new agricultural tools.

His biggest dream in life is to be a model farmer in his community.
