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

Joseph's story

Joseph is 39 years old, married with six children. He earns his income through the sale of crops and profits from his retail shop. He grows coffee, maize, bananas, and cassava. He also has cows, goats and chicken.

Joseph 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, Joseph will use it to pay school fees for his children. His biggest dream in life is to become a leading farmer supplying farm produce in his community food market.
