The last few months have been generally okay, but we have faced some hardships. My husband had to stop working at the mining company to harvest our rice. We harvested 100 Kilograms of rice. We shared some with my mother. This will last us till the end of September – after that we will have to ask our neighbors for help. My husband cannot go back to his old job as someone has already replaced him, and I cannot work due to my disability. I stay home and look after our one year old girl. I have had bad stomachache over the last few months, and our daughter had a high fever, so I had to buy medicines from the village doctor.
