Jayaguru Achar Hinder belongs from Mundru village in Karnataka. Working as a civil engineer, he often used to visit his village to engage in something he loved, farming. In 2019, Jayaguru joined his father's business and applied all his civil engineering experience to bring innovative ways and advanced technologies to increase revenue.
