    This description of Lucas Simons's work was prepared when Lucas Simons was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2013.
    Introduction
    By creating a tool for rating and assessing the strengths and weaknesses of medium-sized agricultural producer groups, Lucas Simons is able to form a common language and standard of information enabling previously disparate stakeholders to communicate and increasing access to financial products for the agricultural sector. Through Scopeinsight, Lucas provides direct and tangible information to farmers, pinpointing their strengths and identifying areas for improvement.
