We are The Agri Entrepreneur Growth Foundation (AEGF)
We create tangible transformation for rural households and farmers in India.
AEGF, established under Section 8 (Companies ACT 2013) was established in 2019. Promoted by Syngenta Foundation India and Tata Trusts, AEGF adopts a decentralized approach towards empowering rural youth and training them to become Agri-Entrepreneurs (AEs) in rural areas. By doing so, the AEs begin playing key roles in developing the agriculture of their surrounding regions. This initiative brings services such as credit, market linkage, access to high-quality input, and crop advisory together, under one roof for associated farmers, who are able to avail previously inaccessible services and earn improved incomes. AEGF’s AE program, a joint venture with the Tata Trusts, aims at developing 100,000 AEs in the following five years to ultimately achieve the goal of serving 20 million smallholders.
