Poultry Social Business

Equipping Cambodia’s rural farmers with the skills and resources to become successful entrepreneurs

Impact

World class training in poultry rearing to enable Cambodia’s most impoverished rural villagers to become small business owners, rearing chickens in their own backyard for vital income to support their families.

Project description

For the past 5 years, Dana Asia has been supporting KJC Farm, an international-standard poultry farm social business in Siem Reap, Cambodia. KJC is designed to upskill low-income Cambodian    villagers in best-practice poultry rearing techniques. To scale KJC’s impact, Dana Asia has designed the Outgrower project, which equips farmers with the resources to launch their own chicken rearing businesses in their homes. Carefully-selected farmers are trained in biosecurity, chicken rearing and financial management before being granted an investment loan to assist the construction of a shed and purchase their first flock of chicks. With the support of professionals, outgrower farmers raise flocks of up to 500 birds per 90-day cycle.  Farmers are then supported in the sales of birds into the local Siem Reap market, generating a sustainable increase in income and improved livelihood for families.
