Edouard AKAKPO-LADO, 25 years, is an electro-mechanical engineer from Togo. He invents machines for agricultural transformation.
 
From a very young age, Edouard liked to create. He used to make small objects such as plastic aeroplanes with materials he bought from his savings. After secondary school, he joined the University to study Physics.
 
But he was disappointed as he soon realised that it was just theory there. So, he left University and followed an electro-mechanic training course to pursue his dream of inventing and creating.
 
Today, Edouard already has some machines that he has created for agricultural cooperatives in urban and rural areas, so as to simplify people’s lives.
