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

Nelly's story

Nelly is 31 years old, single with one child. She earns her income through the sale of crops and runs a small retail shop in her community. She grows coffee, bananas, maize, and cassava. She also has chickens and goats.

Nelly looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW she will use the materials in her business-in-a-box (smartphone and solar charging set) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of her village, helping them to improve their crop yields and increase their incomes.

With the additional money she will earn as a CKW, Nelly will buy her own land and establish a vegetable garden. Her biggest dream in life is to become a political leader in her community.
