WeGro provides investment and guidance to smallholder farmers who are otherwise unable to access formal financing elsewhere. Almost 10 Million farmers across the country do not have access to finance. Additionally, farmers can also avail access to agricultural input and access to markets. All of the projects are insured, monitored, scrutinized and available for the financiers to visit. After the output is produced, they sell the products to their partners (Chaldal, Parmeeda, Bidyanondo Foundation, Khaas Food Limited, etc.), thus ensuring fair prices for the farmers. WeGro takes pride in being Shariah-compliant, thus the financiers receive a share of the profit and the ROI ranges from 16-24%.   

WeGro was founded in April 2021 by Md Mahmudur Rahman and Md. Alvi Rahman, after the two founders, raised project investments from their personal network of friends and peers to invest in their first farm project. Now in 2022, WeGro is seeking to raise $1.2 Million in seed funding to expand its efforts across the entire country  to impact the lives of  200,000 farmers by 2024

Biniyog Briddhi is a multi-year programme dedicated exclusively to boosting the impact entrepreneurship landscape in Bangladesh, by Roots of Impact, the Embassy of Switzerland in Bangladesh & LightCastle Partners. Biniyog Briddhi will work collaboratively with WeGro Technologies Limited to come up with a set of individualized impact management-related milestones.
