At five years old, Alloysius’ parents divorced and he moved to live with his aunt, who was a small-scale farmer in rural Ghana. While staying there, he experienced the challenges small-scale farmers go through to produce food and support their families.
Having made it to college, Alloysius became determined to give back to the people who supported him. This led to the creation of two start-up organisations: Alloyworld,a photography and video production company, and iCottage Networks, a Web and Mobile startup. In 2013, Alloysius launched Farmerline Ltd in partnership with Emmanuel Owusu Addai in order to support small-scale farmers.
He is committed to empowering small-scale farmers like his aunt who are facing similar challenges across Africa. Alloysius has spoken about his work at the 2013 Social Capital Markets Conference and Mobile World Congress 2014. He is a 2014 Echoing Green Fellow.
