GRAAM is implementing this social business project with the support of NABARD Financial Services Limited (NABFINS). The project would facilitate a group of ragi producers to make different value added products based on ragi and to link them to nearest market. This will ensure that ragi producers are benefited by increased employment and income apart from supporting sustainable ragi production.
