Jamin's story

Jamin is a 48-year-old married man with 5 children. He earns his income selling crops and working as a laborer at the community coffee store. He grows coffee, bananas, maize, cowpeas and beans. He also has chickens and goats.

Jamin looks forward to becoming a Community Knowledge Worker (CKW). As a CKW he will use his business-in-a-box (smartphone and solar charger) to disseminate vital agricultural information to the other members of his village and help them to improve their crop yield and increase their incomes.

With the additional money he will earn as a CKW, Jamin will use it to expand his farming enterprises. His biggest dream in life is to educate his children to university level.
