As we keep saying, BKK is a team of farmers who are working in the favour of farmers. Most of the farmers don’t get the chance to decide their market value which makes it extremely difficult to get desired cost. One of the main reason for this is monopoly of the agents who buy the production of the farmers. This is what we are looking to stop. So What we will do? We will cut down the chain of agents and stop monopoly. Yes, you read that right. BKK is going to make the Farmer a king by enabling them to take their own decisions. So how we will do it? BKK is bringing seller and buyer together, we are creating a platform for all the farmers to sell their production directly to the buyer which will enable them to decide their cost. This will eventually cut-down the current long chain of retailers, wholesalers and agents which are affecting the cost.
BKK is team of farmers and we definitely know the issues we as a farmers face each year. Agriculture industry is full of uncertainty hence we need to forecast each and everything carefully. BKK will help farmers understanding the various opportunities to earn in the Agriculture industry. Our focus will be to educate farmers to think like a businessman I.e. invest smartly and earn smartly. Most of the farmers today are unable to repay the loans due to which they don’t get their next loan and eventually fall short of investment. This in turn affects the business cycle and affects the earnings of farmers. BKK team is a group of smart people, many of us are professional CA’s and understands the value of investment perfectly.
Due to various business strategies and monopolies, prices of Seeds & Fertilisations are high. This leaves farmer with a greater burden in the basic production cost and thus became extremely difficult to survive in this cut-throat competition. Farmers with a small land can’t afford good quality seeds and fertilisation hence they can’t take large productions in their lands. BKK is going to reduce this costs again by cutting down the chain system. We are going to get the seeds and fertilisers directly from manufacturers so that it will be available at a cheaper cost than the market. Farmers can even adopt this as a business opportunity too and start their extra income source. We will be conducting various workshops for farmers to educate them about quality seeds, fertilisers, business opportunities, rain water harvesting etc. “Together, we can create a better future”
