Highlights: Naveen is a B.Tech Agricultural Engineering graduate from University of Agricultural Sciences Raichur, Karnataka, class of 2014. Naveen previously worked in the Corporation Bank (Govt. of India) as Assistant Manager. He worked in a remote rural village called Girisagar in Bagalkot District of Karnataka, handling agriculture finance and rural development. He was able to do agriculture credit appraisal amounting $43,00000 (INR 28 crore), and worked directly with farmer’s to process and approve loans. He has experience in funding self-help groups, joint liability groups, and rural development. After working for 22 months, Naveen discovered that being in the banking industry would deviate from his vision of full-time dedication towards agriculture and rural development. So he applied for the AIF Clinton Fellowship to start his personal journey committed towards development sector. He resigned from his banking career in May 2017 and pursued a Yes Foundation Media for Social Change fellowship in New Delhi from May 2017 to July 2017, where he was placed in an NGO working towards empowering disabled through skill development and education. He's looking forward to make a positive change through the AIF Clinton Fellowship.
