Gangadhar Kisan’s commitment to bettering the lives of fellow farmers is inspirational.
Gangadhar Kisan is a tribal farmer in Odisha’s remote Sundargarh region. Farmers in the region had a problem. Thanks to the state government’s new irrigation projects, the vegetable and grain yields shot up. But there was no market for their increased output. This is how Gangadhar, the young CEO of Chhedlagan Farmer Producer Company solved the problem, disrupting the local market, risking his life and limb.
This is a special series in collaboration with Samunnati on some remarkable Farmer Producer Companies that demonstrate when small farmers come together, they can make a big difference.
