Co-Founder and CEO, Crowde


Yohanes Sugihtononugroho is the co-founder and CEO of Crowde, an organization that assists small- and medium-sized farmers in obtaining capital and expanding their businesses. Crowde also provides farmers with information and market access at fair prices through their platform. The organization has grown its coverage area to five major Indonesian islands in the last three years, involving over 20,000 small farmers and agri-SMEs, channeling more than$20 million to farmers, creating jobs in the agricultural sector, and increasing farmers' income by 150 percent. Yohanes was inspired to do this work by his time as a chili and mushroom farmer, where he experienced firsthand the ways that Indonesia's agricultural systems were hurting farmers. His goal is to create an agricultural ecosystem that is more farmer-friendly.

A set of small votive candles are arranged in the shape of a heart near the person’s foot. Six heart-shaped red balloons float above the vigil.
