David's story

David is 37 years old, married with 4 children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and livestock products. He grows maize, coffee, and beans. He also has cows, goats, and chicken.

David 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, David will start a small business and pay school fees for his children. His biggest dream in life is to become a commercial farmer supplying food to his community market.
