Our growth and profitability have further motivated us to reimagine the ecosystem. This milestone is a recognition of our efforts to further the financial inclusion of farmers into the formal economy."

Arya.ag has also launched a first-of-its-kind public agri blockchain ledger and is now in the process of moving its loan operations onto the blockchain.
