What we do

Agri Entrepreneurship Program

A motivated, self-employed rural youth trained under AEGF and mentored to sustainably provide a bouquet of agriculture and allied services to a cohort of farmers.

Agri Services

Financial Inclusion

To invest in their crops, smallholders need loans. Often, however, accessing credit is hard for individuals. In India, we’re taking a team approach to improve farmers’ position.

Gender Inclusion

The program is taking concrete steps for making the program gender inclusive. A female-only training facility has been launched at Eluru to make it easier for aspiring women AEs to take up the residential training program. Women AEs make up to 15% of the total AE strength.

Rural Youth in Agriculture

AEGF’s Skill Upgradation for Rural Youth in Agriculture (SURYA) program enables youth from rural areas to become Agriculture Technology Assistants (ATAs).
