Mrs. Ork N., 45, has a pig-raising skill that she learned from her grandparent and currently uses this knowledge to make a living. She has built a pigpen where she breeds many pigs and she also sells the pigs to a buyer when the pigs come to maturity.
Besides this, Ork N. and her husband take time to cultivate a rice crop for the propose of eating and selling as well. This approaching rainfall season is the best for growing and Ork N. is applying for a loan to plant rice crops.
Ork N. now has four children: one is married and three are single. Ork N. was not available when the photo taken so her daughter is pictured instead.
