GC supports Oorja in a $1 million round to scale up pay-per-use farming services
Ottobre 12, 2021

Oorja’s mission is to empower 10 million farmers globally by 2030 with the agricultural services they need to sustainably increase their income and quality of life. It provides solar-powered affordable services of irrigation, milling and cooling to smallholder farmers that were previously reliant on diesel engines for their on-farm energy needs.

The round has been subscribed by Schneider Electric Energy Access Asia (SEEAA) with grants from Water & Energy for Food Grand Challenge (WE4F) and the DOEN Foundation. The new capital will be used for agri-energy infrastructure projects and to expand operations and the team in northern India.

Fabio Mondini de Focatiis, commented: “Oorja represents a great example of an innovative farming company. Thanks to the capital raise, Oorja will be able to increase agricultural productivity reducing on-farm carbon emissions and supporting and empowering local communities.”
