Denis's story

Denis is twenty-six years old and married with two children. He earns his income through selling crops in a shop. He grows coffee, maize, banana and cassava. He also has sheep and chicken.

Denis 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 he will earn as a CKW, Denis will be able to expand his business. His biggest dream in life is to become an agricultural extension officer.
