Abstract: Warehouse receipt financing (pledge financing) is a relatively new concept in India. Although it has been growing steadily, its outreach is still not significant enough to impact the lives of farmers in India. This case attempts to highlight the importance and benefits of warehouse receipt financing for farmers through the story of its protagonist Manjeet Singh, a small farmer from Govindpur village in Punjab, India. It compares all the agri-financing options available to him. After studying those options, the students can discuss their relative merits and demerits. It also brings to light the plight of farmers in India who in spite of having bumper crops, do not have storage options easily accessible, leading to crop damage and wastage and subsequently to income not commensurate with crop production.
