What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Vipani brings within the reach of poor farmers the four essential ingredients of profitable farming through a local Vipani Unit run by a village agent who works with them and makes them self-sufficient over time. Vipani manages a financing program for poor farmers who are typically not served micro-credit or commercial lenders because of the high risks and unpredictable outcomes involved with farming due to the vagaries weather, pests and diseases, and markets. Vipani gives loans to farmers tailored to their specific needs that change through the season and with specific crops. Vipani also brings market information to farmers in a way that is useful to them and brings access to technologies and technical support suited to the local conditions. Further, Vipani brings multiple market parties into local market networks enabling the local farmers to fetch prices that minimize cost of production and maximize revenue.
