Agribusiness Microfinance Institution (LKMA)
    This description of Masril Koto's work was prepared when Masril Koto was elected to the Ashoka Fellowship in 2011.
    Masril Koto is meeting the financing needs of Indonesia’s poor farmers through a hybrid cooperative bank owned wholly by them. Through this structure, Masril is creating a sense of independence, control, pride, and ambition in the mindset of rural citizens by building on a spirit of collaboration and camaraderie.
