CHENNAI: If failure were to deter him, K Sakthikumar, an organic farmer at Vallivilai near Kayamozhi in Tiruchendur taluk of Thoothukudi district would have given up farming 10 years ago, because he had lost about Rs 8 lakh in the first year of farming itself.
After graduation, instead of hunting for a job, Sakthikumar took to organic farming by raising loans to eke out a living. Today he is a source of inspiration for a cluster of small farmers in the region.
