I am single mother and I have five children. I got married when I was 15, which was 25 years ago now, but my husband just died because of a sickness. I am not sure what it was because we never took him to the doctor. I miss him and his support. When he was alive he worked with my family on the rice field. Since he died my brother has helped me to work in the rice fields, clearing and harvesting it. My father-in-law owned half a hectare of land growing coffee plants, but he also recently passed away. I work on this land alone now, clearing it of weeds and sorting the coffee beans to sell.
