“In the last three months, we have moved into a house next to the sawmill where my husband works, provided to us by the mill owner. We only live here when my husband has work (about 3 to 4 days per month). When there is no work, we move to a village where the mill owner has rice fields that he allows us to cultivate free of charge. This is where we live most of the time – and we usually keep the goats there – but it is also not our homestead village. So we are constantly moving between three villages, i.e. the saw mill, the rice fields, and our home.
