EPISCOPAL RELIEF & DEVELOPMENT: Farmers in Myanmar Diversify Crops for Economic Stability

With assistance from Episcopal Relief & Development and local partners, small-crop farmers in Myanmar are finding ways of keeping to their tradition of growing rice, while increasing their overall production and economic stability.

45-year old Mg Kyut Yin is one of these farmers, cultivating two rice paddy farms in the small village of Ta Ree Poe Kwe in Kayin State. He lives with his wife, Naw Paw Lay Hto, their five children and his mother. Although his wife does day labor, and they raise goats and chickens to sell, they always found it hard to make ends meet. He explained, “In the rainy season I worked every day in the farm. After harvest, I did not have a job and had to wait until another rainy season started.”
