I have been married for four years and have three young children. I moved from another village, but I am still a local man. We live very close to my parents. The village authorities gave us this land where we built our house, but we have been paying tax. We have ownership, but we never asked the authorities for ownership document. My husband works as a laborer. He construct houses and gets 1 million kip (123 USD) per a house. We also earn from breeding and selling chickens for about 12,000-30000 kip per chicken, depending on the size. During rainy season, we catch and sell frogs but at the moment there is only enough catch for our daily consumption. When the rainy season starts, we can earn an income from this activity again.
