"Thousands of Sri Lankan farmers to benefit from UN-funded anti-poverty scheme

23 February 2010 – Nearly 58,000 farming households in Sri Lanka are expected to benefit from a United Nations-funded programme designed to improve their livelihoods, boost their incomes and enhance their participation in the marketing and selling of their products.
