Farming / வேளாண்மை,

http://isupportfarming.com/how-it-works/

Our engagement model is mutually beneficial to all the three parties involved namely the farmer, you as the investor and us as the facilitator. Technically the engagement between you and us is that I Support Farming is your service provider helping you to take up agriculture activities of your choice. We take in your farming money as an advance and carry out activities to raise a crop that you have opted for. All activities are done by us on your behalf as a service, governed by a service agreement between you and the company. For performing the agricultural activities, we deploy farmers as one of our suppliers who supply land and labour to us. To keep it short, in this model, you the urban investor is the farmer, ISF is the service agent and Farmers are our suppliers.
