Having understood the complexity of agrarian distress, we have come up with a holistic model which provides end-to-end services to farmers through a digital platform—GramHeet Mandi. We collaborate with Community Based Organizations (CBOs), Farmer Producer Organizations (FPOs) and Village Entrepreneurs (VEs) to deliver these services at their farm-gate. This unique model not only helps farmers in increasing their income by reducing the cost of cultivation and post-harvest expenses, but also offers better prices for their produce.
GramHeet is an amalgamation of two vernacular Marathi words—‘Gram’ and ‘Heet’ which translates into ‘prosperity of the village’. We, at GramHeet, espouse this through the ‘farmers first’ approach. This stems from the fact that both our co-founders themselves come from farming families in a small village called Warud in the Yavatmal district of Maharashtra, whose lived experience of agrarian distress propelled them to build this organisation.Know More
