Organic Farming Helps Farmers Reap Prosperity
Meenakshipuram village of Tamil Nadu had minimal infrastructure. And in the absence of collateral, the villagers were not getting any institutional support. NABARD sanctioned a loan of Rs. 24,58,300 to Centre for Rural Education and Development for on-lending to 100 impoverished families. Consequently, the village is now illuminated with solar power and the introduction of natural farming methods has reaped rich rewards to farmers.
