GRANE: Maximizing Value and Creating Micro-Entrepreneurs

Through GRANE, farmers and tailors can sell their products to wide audiences under Ekal's brand, Ekal Upaj.

  • First, entrepreneurs sell their products to the Ekal, which buys them above market price.
  • Next, Ekal creates value-added products, like turmeric powder and black pepper, to sell to mainstream markets.
  • Finally, profits are recycled into the GRC, creating a self-sustaining system.
