More information on Wikipedia

Over 75% people in Cambodia live in the countryside, making their living from small-scale agriculture, fishing and occasional labour and small businesses. Their livelihoods are primarily dependent on available natural resources and are influenced by factors which are often beyond their control. For example, a delayed or short rainy season means the loss of a great part of a household’s harvest and thus minimal income and food availability for the following months. Limited support provided to small-scale farmers, insufficiently developed markets, environmental degradation and large companies-driven grabbing of land used by poor farmers all limit the opportunities for improving livelihoods of rural Cambodians.

People in Need (PIN) focuses on development of agricultural production of poor and at the same time of the most motivated farmers living in rural areas (where 93% of the poorest Cambodians live). Through the development of counseling, veterinary, technical and other services available on the market we help people to improve their livelihoods and escape the circle of poverty. PIN closely cooperates with local non-governmental organisations, the private sector, Provincial Departments of Agriculture and local authorities.
