About

Eighty percent of Cambodians live in rural areas, but their agricultural productivity is hampered by lack of skills in sustainable agriculture and small business. Jetstar supports this project to assist in enhancing the business skills and potential of agricultural cooperatives – creating sustainable business processes which increase household income and contribute to the well-being of Cambodian families and their children.

OBJECTIVES

This project aims to enhance the business skills and potential of agricultural cooperatives to generate sustainable incomes in order support their families and give their children a brighter future. The project’s objectives are:

– Increased capacity of agricultural cooperatives to self-manage and improve their own business and market access.

– Increased saving behaviour among cooperative members.

– Business models and practices of cooperatives are expanded and improved upon.

– Business skills of cooperatives are strengthened.
