In May 2012, USAID/Timor-Leste and ConocoPhillips entered into a partnership to support the expansion of USAID's Developing Agricultural Communities (DAC) activity into ten new communities in Aileu District. The partnership enabled more than 200 farmers to become participants in DAC training and market linkage activities. As a result of their participation, these farmers have seen their income from horticulture production increase dramatically, in some cases by more than 400%. In June 2014, USAID and ConcoPhillips expanded the partnership to provide training for farmers in 10 new communities and to assist the development of input suppliers and traders to support the horticulture market in those communities.
