The shortage of money to buy paddy during this harvesting season is a main problem of a community based rice mill in Chhumkiri district, Kompot province. There are many tons of paddy are being sold currently to the middlemen in the district meanwhile the community based rice mill has no sufficient capital to buy more rice. It is expected that more capital will be provided very soon. If the community based rice mill has more money, more paddy will be bought.

The community now has established a warehouse in SreJang commune, Chhumkiri district. The community will use that warehouse to stock their paddy for a while and sell it at an appropriate time in order to maximize their profit.
