We are a small team with a large family working closely together to provide last mile services to farmers. Our focus areas are agriculture, healthcare and education.

From providing access to modern farming techniques to healthcare, the farmers are provided with hand holding support.

Surjeet grew up surrounded by pristine landscape in the heart of Manipur’s vegetables production zone within striking distance from Loktak Lake. Agriculture was always his passion and, after a brief stint outside of Manipur, he returned home to start farming. Surjeet also worked as the Project Coordinator for the MaolKeki Foundation before deciding to take the leap to become an Agri Entrepreneur and grow the ViB agribusiness. Because of the unique combination of deep agronomic knowledge and entrepreneurial skills, Surjeet is well positioned to provide deep technical mentoring to our AEs.
In his spare time, he likes to catch up with farmers from his village and spend time with his family.
Dr. Shachi is responsible for the vision and strategy behind the MaolKeki Foundation. An avid intra/entrepreneur, he has worked across four continents, and is currently driving agtech adoption in Africa and South Asia. A strong believer in humanity and the positive change people can bring working together, he is a philanthropist at heart and has tirelessly worked to shape the MKF team, its partnerships and our activities on the ground. He is always only a phone call or text message away. That is, unless he is busy growing vegetables in his home garden or helping out someone.
