About The Campaign

About The Campaign

 

More than 80% of India's farmers are small and marginal farmers, who own less than 5 acres of land. Individually, because of the size of the landholding, they are under represented and don't have access to a host of services such as access to affordable credit and affordable warehousing, which farmers with larger farms do. The prevailing uncertainty has aggravated distress.

Amidst the lockdown, fear of falling prices of food grains, drop in exports and lower demand have created a distress situation across communities of small and marginal farmers. On the other hand, marginal farmers who are getting ready for the upcoming sowing season are in urgent need of credit for inputs and for the sustenance of their own families.

This brewing distress, therefore, does not just affect an individual farmer, but their families and communities as a whole.

Access to credit to marginal farmers in the current times is more important than ever before. With institutional credit becoming harder to access, Rang De's aim is to leverage its peer to peer lending platform to create a mass citizens' movement in support of farmers.

Rang De is working with farmer producer groups and credible organizations on the ground to support small and marginal farmers who are affected by the current situation.

While our on the ground partner organizations provide facilities such as warehousing and access to markets, Rang De's interest-free loans will enable farmers to borrow with respect and dignity. While the larger farmers closer to urban markets are finding innovative ways to thrive through direct marketing, it is the small farmers who are in the heart of rural India and form a bulk of the farming sector, who need our support.

Rang De India is a clarion call to ordinary citizens of India to join hands in support of small and marginal farmers.

Social Investment Will Enable:

Social Investment Will Enable:

 

· A marginal farmer to get access to warehousing for their grains so that they do not need to sell their produce in distress.

· A marginal farmer to buy inputs for the upcoming sowing season.

While our farmers are working hard to ensure that we continue to have food on our table, your interest free loans will ensure the farmer’s family does not go hungry.

Rang De and NDTV have come together to highlight the impending crisis faced by small and marginal farmers across the country. By providing interest free loans to farmers in distress, we would like to ensure that they are able to take care of themselves and their families, while at the same time carry on with their farming.
