Women-Led Agriculture Service Team (WLAS)
According to a 2015 World Bank’s report on Gender in Cambodia’s Agriculture, approximately 2.3 million families are farmers and 75% of them are women due to migration. In 2015 Oxfam and partners Rachana and Srer Khmer set up a local private service provider - a group of landless women equipped with agriculture techniques and skills in Pursat and Takeo province to provide local technical farming services to their community. WLAS provides diversity of technical services including rice production, vegetable cropping, animal husbandry and aquaculture. The teams have not only improved their livelihood and income but also help other small farmers to maximize their land for benefit.
