Ltoponua Leldimain is a young farmer in Samburu County in Kenya who heard an agricultural progamme on Serian FM and wasted no time calling up the presenter Nicholus Lenyakopiro.  Nicholus in turn referred him to Agriculture Extension Officer, Mary Lemaletian to answer specific questions about his bean farm.  The rest, as the saying goes, is history.
