“My name is Pao. I am 58 years old, and I was born and raised in this village. I have never been to school, but I taught myself to read Lao (but cannot write). My parents live in the same village, and their main occupation is growing rice on their upland rice farms. They do not have enough rice yield to support themselves – they are old, struggling, and food insecure.
