Farmer’s Club program was introduced by NABARD in order to bridge the gap between the rural customers and the banks. The basic objective of Farmers Clubs is development in rural areas through credit, technology transfer, awareness and capacity building. In this regard, the Farmer’s Club has undertaken various activities ranging from Base Level Orientation Training program, Capacity building exercise and Meet the Expert program. This has encouraged the culture of better usage of credit, in the recent past.
Regular training, nurturing of clubs by NABARD along with regular interaction with various stakeholders like state government departments, input agencies build the required confidence and knowledge level of members. Trained members are encouraged to pass on the technologies they have learnt to their fellow farmers in the villages thus making the Farmers Clubs a tool in overall development of village.
