Forest villages are located a long distance from cities. The living conditions in these villages are severe. Forest villagers have low-income. Their share in the national income is very low: the equivalent to about one quarter of the national income. The main income of these villagers comes from working in the forest and a very small amount from a few agricultural activities. They don’t own large pieces of agricultural land. Forestry work, however, lasts no more than five months, mostly in winter and is done under very harsh working conditions.
