Farmers rely on local money lenders for their immediate cash requirements for field inputs, irrigation facilities and other home needs which often comes at a huge cost. OSF team took note of the situation. We disburse farm loans at zero interest to the select needy farmers in the area. The capital on repayment will be redeployed for other farmers in a specific area. Those who availed the loans have used the amount to construct vermicompost tanks, buy foot-pumps to lift water from streams and wells in fields that are far from the electric line.
