I Got Crops - Success StorY

Story of Muniamma

See how Muniamma increased her annual revenue 3X through I Got Crops platform.

Intro

How did Muniamma know the real price of her produce and also expanded her farming into adjecent crops?

Muniamma was a marginal farmer who was struggling to make profits on her one-acre land and fighting to get the right price for the crops that she produces. She lacked opportunities to sell her products in the market due to middlemen and the exploitative nature of the existing ecosystem. Her input and transport costs were higher than the revenue. Muniamma barely made any profits and lacked information, awareness and the predictability to plan and make informed decisions.
