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.

Moses's story

Moses is 40 years old and married with seven children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and a small wage as a local community volunteer. He grows maize, coffee, beans, Irish potatoes and bananas. He also has cows, goats and chickens.

Moses looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW) supervisor. As a CKW supervisor, he will use the materials in his business-in-a-box (smartphone and solar charging set) to support other CKWs in disseminating vital agricultural information to the other members of their villages, helping them to improve their crop yields and increase their incomes. He will also personally offer CKW services to farmers.

With the additional money that he will earn as a CKW, Moses will expand his farm and pay school fees for his children. His biggest dream in life is to become a model farmer supporting other small-holder farmers in his community.
