The article focuses on rural poverty in Cambodia. A study conducted by the International Monetary Fund (IMF) states that poverty level in Cambodia is falling but there is a continued suffering in rural inhabitants. In 2004, an estimated 35 percent of Cambodians are in the poverty line, compared to the 47 percent in 1994. To address this problem, Cambodia's government is looking at infrastructure development and better share of rice revenues for farmers.
