India’s first certified B corp, eKutir started in 2009 with a vision to provide equal opportunities and sustainable development to people at the “bottom of the pyramid.” It has created a first of its kind, integrated, data-driven platform to empower poor smallholders and create new jobs in rural communities. Originally operational in India, today the company is active in Nepal and Haiti. eKutir’s 74,000 farmers, with the help of over 400 micro-entrepreneurs, have seen average yields and income increased, while cutting operating costs.

Independent assessments of eKutir’s social impact have also demonstrated improvements in gender equality. The ICT platform has since been applied to a larger variety of industries, including water, sanitation and food furthering its reach and impacting more than 100,000 lives in the rural markets.

Since its incorporation in 2009, eKutir has set- up multiple subsidiary social enterprises to augment the model’s growth across food, agriculture, and sanitation, and in the process has received awards, capital and support from Facebook, Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Government of India, World Bank, Inter-American Development Bank, and the UN, among others.
