Rivers in northwestern Bangladesh rise sharply during the rainy season causing months of flooding in villages and on farms. This hurts the rural poor who depend on agriculture to survive. When the floods cover their land they cannot grow crops or raise animals. But local farmers may have found a way to deal with the seasonal weather. Some are building small farms that float on top of the floodwaters. Hafiza Khatun works on a floating farm near the village of Charbhangura. She raises ducks for eggs. The farm is made of bamboo and empty oil containers. It is attached to the bank of a river. Women also raise fish and vegetables. Ms. Khatun is 25 years old and has two young children. She could not earn money during the rainy season from July to October. During that time, the local river rises at least three meters. Three years ago, a Bangladeshi non-profit organization called Shidhulai Swanirvar Sangstha brought small floating farms to the village. The farms are 17 meters long and almost five meters wide. They are made of both recycled and local materials. Vegetables such as gourds and beans are grown in plastic containers filled with soil on the floating structures. The non-profit group pays the cost of making the farm. Five to ten women work on one farm. Together they can earn about 1,700 dollars a year. That amount of money can buy a lot of food in rural Bangladesh. Ms. Khatun also rented land with the money she earned. She grows sugar cane on the land. Her family also is saving money in a bank for the first time.
