It's taken six months but finally Samoan farmers badly affected by Cyclone Evan last December are beginning their first harvest.

The Women in Business group together with Oxfam has been assisting 300 farmers re-establish their crops and property damaged by the destructive cyclone.

The executive director of the group, Adi Maimalaga Tafuna'i, says there's been a massive effort to get the farms back into production.
