Ayekart, SERP come together to help AP self-help groups

Amaravati: To give a boost to self-help groups (SHG) and the farming community of Andhra Pradesh, Ayekart integrated tech platform and Andhra Pradesh government's Society for Elimination of Rural Poverty (SERP) have signed an MoU.

As part of the MoU, both organisations will make collaborative projects for the commercialisation of embedded technology related to agri and food processing at various levels of the value chain for boosting domestic sale and export of agri products.

SERP, an organisation under the Andhra Pradesh department of rural development, facilitates poverty reduction through social mobilisation and improvement of livelihoods of rural poor in the state. It also aims to create scalable opportunities in rural areas, find digital solutions, and skills and guide rural communities to meet their aspirations by building agri-entrepreneurs. For this purpose, SERP has sought the support of Ayekart.

The MoU will bring model FPO (farmer production organisation) and input shops run by SHGs on self-sustaining model and digitise the SERP rural marts. The community is based by organising 69,31,113 rural women into 6,52,440 SHGs, 26,753 village organisations, 656 mandal samakhyas, and 13 zilla samakhyas.
