|Project: Farming for Futures|
With over 80% of Cambodia's population living in rural and remote areas, Farming for Futures provides local employment opportunities and empowers an indigenous response to the challenge of poverty alleviation. By planting crops suitable to the Cambodian climate, using local knowledge and expertise, Farming for Futures presents a successful investment in sustainable livelihoods.
Supervisors manage day-to-day responsibilities including cultivation and planting, ongoing maintenance and harvest. Profi ts are then used to create small business loans. It’s now possible for people to benefit from the ownership of land that was previously only available to a privileged few.
Strong regional expansion and the national road development have ensured good capital growth, trade with neighboring countries and excellent market returns at harvest.
