ApnaGodam is a Jaipur based Agritech Startup providing warehousing facilities and online commodity financing to farmers all across India. In addition to ths, ApnaGodam facilitates an online platform that facilitate farmers, traders and buyers with online trading in commodities.Thus helping in better price discovery and provide facilities for smooth marketing of their produce.
Sellers don’t have access to warehousing facilities and commodity finance since Terminals are situated at far off locations. They sell their commodity immediately post harvest at lower price and don’t get the benefit of price appreciation.
We identify closed factories, Old sheds and abandoned buildings NEAR production area and convert them into agriculture Terminals where the Sellers can keep the Agri commodity and avail commodity loan by pledging the stock. When prices of agri produce are better then they can sell the stock to millers on the apnagodam portal on “ As is Where is basis”.
