By Zee Media Bureau

Walmart Foundation on Thursday announced two new grants to help smallholder farmers in India.

The fresh grants are part of a commitment made in September 2018 to invest $25 million (approximately Rs. 180 crores) over five years in improving farmer livelihoods in India. The new funding, which totals $4.5 million, will allow non profits Tanager and PRADAN to further scale their efforts to help farmers earn more from improved output and fair market access, Walmart said.
