How crowdfunding in India is making farmer’s dreams come true!

The Marathwada region of Maharashtra has been at the epicentre of a horrific drought that has lasted for three years. Over 3000 farmers have committed suicide. This is a story about the villagers in one such village – a village called HORTI with 700 farmers & how they used crowdfunding on Fueladream to successfully build a water canal to survive.

A NGO called Suryoday approached Fueladream to help these farmers. We rolled out a campaign in English & Hindi languages. We advertised this on social media, to our existing funders and got newspapers and online websites to write about this. It came as a surprise to many that crowdfunding in India could also work in situations like this. The funds were raised in a record 10 days & reaffirmed that crowdfunding in India had come of age
