'Mitigate the Cause of Our Poverty'

To begin, it is apt to state that research has shown that poverty is rife in the rural area and that over sixty percent of rural families live on incomes below the designated poverty line.

Based on this, it is imperative that any programme aimed at improving the standard of living and long-term economic stability in the rural area should hinge itself on the premise of further developing and sustaining agriculture, the resource base from which rural incomes are derived as well as establishing credit facilities where rural people can access funds that do not attract unbearable interest rates.
