The community of the Valley consists of farmers and people working in one of the local organizations: Local Government, Water Board, Local Development Office (LDO), Bank and Environmental Non-Governmental Organization (ENGO).
The Farmers use their parcels in very different ways. The parcels are of the same size but differ by their elevations.
At the beginning of each year, farmers are presented with the results of their actions from the previous year.
The Valley Bank provides investment loans.
