Ashok Prasad, co-founder of Unnati, during the launch of the card, said, “We are proud to announce that Unnati is the first agri-tech startup to launch this kind of product. No other brand has launched anything that is so tightly integrated into a digital platform that also enables transactions yet. Our newly launched cards aim to enable farmers to avail top-quality products, improve their marketplace access, and boost their overall income. We will be introducing more such products soon.”
