The second day of ‘Jai Kisan Jai Vigyan‘On December 24, Krishi Jagran hosted a webinar on Financial Literacy for Farmers. This session was moderated by MC Dominic, Founder and Editor-in-Chief of Krishi Jagran and Agriculture World.

Opinions shared by Ashish Agrawal:

He began his speech by thanking the entire Krishi Jagran team for hosting such a webinar and said that financial literacy is nothing but money management and is important to everyone, especially for those with an irregular income flow like farmers.

He went on to quote this about 60 percent of a farmer’s annual income is usually spent on loan repayment and interest. According to Ashish, this is due to many uncertainties such as weather, market, government policies, etc., which he believes could be properly mitigated if farmers used programs like the Kisan credit card to help increase their production instead of using it. for consumption.

He concluded his speech by saying that better financial management and the proper use of government programs and subsidies is the only way farmers often avoid falling into the debt trap.
