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.

Sarah's story

Sarah is a 24-year-old single woman with no children. She earns her income selling crops and working at the local farmer's cooperative. She grows coffee, maize, beans and tomatoes. She also has chickens and sheep.

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

With the additional money she will earn as a CKW, Sarah will expand her garden and raise pigs. Her biggest dream in life is to have a well-established farm with good crops and animals.
