Bennet Ansong

Portfolio Manager, Ghana

As Root Capital’s Portfolio Manager in Ghana, I analyze loan applications from rural businesses around the country and monitor the quality of outstanding loans. I’ve been working in international development and agribusiness for over ten years, supporting organizations like Technoserve and ACDI/VOCA in bringing finance and training to rural enterprises and smallholder farmers. I enjoy taking on complex and challenging situations and finding solutions; in this role, I get to do that while working to improve the livelihoods of farmers across West Africa.
