Rogers's story

Rogers is 31 years old and is married with two children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and through livestock. He earns a monthly wage 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 his land Rogers grows coffee, maize, beans, cassava, sweet potatoes and bananas. He also has cows, goats, and chickens.

As a CKW, Rogers 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 adopt better farming practices to improve crop yields and increase their incomes. With the additional money he will earn as a CKW, Rogers will expand his coffee garden and increase his coffee production. His biggest dream in life is to be the largest coffee producer in his community
