Summary A producer company is a new generation, community-owned social enterprise introduced in India by amending the Companies Act of 1956. It aims to blend the best tenets from traditional social enterprises, like co-operatives, with the company's regulatory framework. Sustaining these new generation organizations is the key challenge for community-oriented management. Upaj Producers Company Limited (UPCL), a community-owned social enterprise in the Kutch district of Gujarat province in India, is trying its best to remain relevant. As this business venture was getting off the ground, managements ability to meet its social goals and remain financially viable was in deep jeopardy. The case outlines issues faced by UPCL's chief executive officer, Mr. Gautam Sharma, and his team to raise viable, patient capital for a fledgling enterprise. The case warrants participants to be in a consultant role and suggest ways out for UPCL to remain financially viable
