A loan of $325 helped a member to buy farming equipment.


Lanso Group's story

Mr. Akossi is married to a farmer. He is the father of seven children aged 2 to 18, five of whom go to school. Born in 1984, he has been a farmer since 2000. He appreciates his work and is fully dedicated to it as a means of capitalizing on what the land has to offer. Six people assist him with his work. He usually gets his supplies in SOKODE (central region). He is seeking this third loan to buy farming equipment, which will help to improve his yield and satisfy customer demand. He is the representative of the group LANSO consisting of three men who grow maize, rice and other crops. They wish to expand their farmable area, support their children’s education, and build homes.
