The first rural radio in Maharashtra began as an announcement about Mann Deshi's loan program.

Now Mann Deshi Tarang broadcasts ten hours a day, reaching 34,000 people per year.

Mhaswad residents, trained by the Commonwealth Education Media Center for Asia (CEMCA), are constantly expanding our programs and reach.

We broadcast on agriculture, health issues, and youth programs. We adapt our business school courses for radio and keep farmers updated on market prices.

We have even developed SMS reminders for the Udyogini lessons we air.
