In India, three out of four women living in rural areas work on small-scale farms. As farming challenges have pushed many rural men to cities in search of better-paying jobs, women have become responsible for most of the country’s dairy production and food production. Despite their crucial role in the agriculture sector, social norms make it harder for women to own farmland in India.
With our partner Dvara KGFS, we’re bringing loans, credit, savings, and insurance to women farmers across India so they can create brighter futures for themselves and their families. Watch how Mahalakshmi and Jansiranni built thriving businesses in Tamil Nadu, India, with support from Dvara KGFS.
Together with partners, Accion is empowering women farmers and their families with the financial support they need for their businesses to thrive.
