Agriculture and financial inclusion are Orabank Togo’s priorities

(Togo First) - As part of its contribution to Togo’s recovery from Covid-19, Orabank reiterated its ambition to support the country’s agricultural sector and financial inclusion.

Guy Martial Awona, MD of Orabank Togo, disclosed this ambition during a meeting with PM Victoire Tomegah-Dogbe, held on July 5 in Lomé. 

“We discussed several issues, mainly financing the economy in the areas of agriculture and financial inclusion. Agriculture has been one of Orabank's financing objectives for several years. Subsequently, we have financed, within the framework of the PAEIJ-SP and the MIFA, many projects with convincing results, but also lessons to be learned,” Awona said.

In detail, the bank will take steps focused on processing products, to reduce imports. "Covid-19 and the Russia-Ukraine war have shown that there is an opportunity in agriculture for a country like Togo," the lender’s boss added. In this framework, support will be provided to the informal actors, the youth and women especially, working in the agricultural sector.
