The hinterland of Aceh Utara in North Sumatra has suffered from a thirty years conflict between rebel groups and the government. Only since 2005 there is peace in this area. The results of the conflict are still obvious. Education and business skills couldnt develop here as in other regions. Most of the small farmers live from the traditional rice farming in the low land areas.
But from the traditional rice farming they hardly can live and the farmers often cannot pay all the living cost for their families. An additional income would relieve this situation and help to pay for urgent needs and to invest more in childrens education and other family care requirements.
