A loan of $2,925 helped a member to buy farming tools.

Lelengwe Group's story

Essohanam, born in 1969, is a professional farmer located in the city of Sokodé, in the Central Region of Togo. He lives with his wife (a reseller), and their seven children, in that same city. Since his farmland is quite large, eight people help him with his work. In order to continue his activity, started in 1990, he is requesting a fourth loan from WAGES to buy some farming tools.

Essohanam would like to use his additional profits to raise poultry. In the future, he would like to increase the surface area of his farmland and to make it possible for his family to be more prosperous.

It should be noted that Essohanam is the leader of a group of men who all have faith in their land. These men grow rice and maize and hope to continue their activities with the profits generated from the sale of their crops.

In this group: Essohanam, Komi, Kawikaté, Fawi, Balakiyem, Bamomba, Badouwa, Katanoki, Tara-Abalo, Essowedeou, Kodjo, Pale, Gomine, Nicolas, Mazahalo
