Past Success

Rice Bank – Ta Ma Village

In 1994/95 SEADO set up a committee to manage a rice

bank for the people of Ta Ma Village and it is still running today. It was set up to make sure villagers had rice to plant when they needed it. Members can borrow 100 kg of paddy rice at the start of the growing season and then pay back 130 kg at the end. Profits are used for community projects like repairing roads, building maintenance and now money is available to help sick people in the village if they are poor. This is a great example of what a community can do for itself with a bit of help from SEADO.
