Philippine farmers weather storms

New scheme raises farmers' confidence to work their land.

    The Philippines has been hit by four typhoons in less than a month.

    Tens of thousands of farmers have lost their livelihoods, and poverty is now rife in what is supposed to be the country's food basket.

    In the past small farmers have had no insurance against crop failure.

    But, as Al Jazeera's Divya Gopalan reports from Iloilo in the central Philippines, a new scheme is giving them confidence to stay on the land.
