A loan of $250 helped to purchase a mobile phone and a solar charging set so that he may provide vital farming information to his community.

Daniel's story

Daniel is 28 years old, single with no children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and small wages as a local health volunteer. He grows maize, coffee, and beans. He also has cows, goats, and chickens.

Daniel looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone and solar charging) 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, Daniel will buy improved farm inputs and expand his farming enterprises. His biggest dream is to open an agro dealer shop called “Kaptama Agro inputs dealers” providing hybrid seeds, fertilizer, herbicides and farm tools at low costs to farmers in his community.
