This project will allow Sophat and her family in north-east Cambodia to raise chickens to increase their income as well as their food security and be able to send their children back to school
What is the issue, problem, or challenge?
Mrs. Soy Sophat, 52 years old, currently lives with her husband and two sons in Prekor village, in northeast Cambodia. Sophat is a farmer whose main livelihood depends on agriculture and chicken raising. It is not very reliable as the methods they use imply a slow chicken growth and high deaths tolls. These difficulties led her sons to drop out of school to look for work and the family to ask for loans which put them into debt.
How will this project solve this problem?
CRDT could help this family improve their livelihood by providing them capacity building on chicken raising techniques, and capital for 15 hens, 2 cocks, adequate feed and vaccination for one year, feeders and water bottles, and housing pen and fence construction. Moreover, there is a high demand for local chickens on markets so Sophat's family could take this opportunity to improve their income.
Potential Long Term Impact
By working to empower Sophat's family, CRDT will help them become self-reliant. This amount will allow this family to receive help during one year which wil contribute to provide them sufficient food and an income surplus. On the long run, Sophat will have a sufficient income to send her children back to school and to reach food security.
