Currently, she tries to make ends meet by selling some duck eggs, chicken eggs as well as raising a flock of 20 chickens. However, building an appropriate chicken coop for bigger raising scale is beyond her reach. The family has been struggling with unstable income. In addition, they have been living in the house consisted of rotted materials while the floor was soiled. 

From 7th to 9th November, a team of 11 enthusiastic people from We Are Bamboo volunteered to assist the family to overcome the difficulties.
