Product/Service Summary

eFasal is an ecosystem that brings together all players in the agriculture sector, with the primary intention of reducing the gap between the buyers and producers. Buyers have three requirements - large quantity, homogenous quality and competitive price. Unfortunately, farmers in India have small land holdings due to which, they can deliver only small quantities and heterogeneous quality.

eFasal is a service, and it brings all associates together to work in unison. Currently, we are looking to raise funds for portal development, human resource management, and five model collection cum distribution centers.
