Inadequate income of rural communities

Slow rate of rural income expansion
Insufficient trade income of village communities

The major issues affecting agricultural and community development in most small villages are sources of initiating capital and land space. (a) Capital: Although the present-day tendency for rural people to be employed outside the village means they bring in more money than previously, since these jobs pay more than fishing or farming, the wages are still comparatively low because of the rise in the cost of living; and few villagers have the technical skills needed for job improvement and advancement. Most money, whether it comes from jobs or farming, is spent on goods and services outside the village. (b) Land space: Current ownership patterns preclude the location of more job opportunities at village level and limit space available for recreational facilities.
