Vin Murria OBE: Patron


Appointment date: January 2022

Vin has been an active supporter of Shivia for many years and has generously offered exclusive use of her box at the Royal Albert Hall for various concerts and events.  By auctioning the box at our fundraising events, we have been able to raise thousands of pounds for our programmes in West Bengal.

We are thrilled to have Vin as our patron. She shares our vision to empower the poorest to create livelihoods with dignity and is also passionate about elevating the status of women in India to become respected earners. 

Vin is a highly successful entrepreneur with energy, drive and determination to succeed and these are the qualities we also witness and admire in the people we are working with in some of India’s poorest communities.

  • Agri-management Services has the capacity to deliver lasting change for our farmers. I have always felt that the farmers feed our nation while they can hardly afford to feed themselves. What an irony. So if my team and I are able to help farmers earn a sustainable income through agriculture, there’s nothing better than this.

  • I have witnessed first-hand how Shivia has not just changed but transformed people's lives with its livelihood programmes.
