Phearum Rom

Goat Farmer

Age 32

How long have you worked with RAW? Since February 2017.

What did you do before working with RAW? I worked as a Fisherman.

What does your job involve? I feed and look after the goats. I also plant vegetables to support my family.

What is your favourite part of your job? I love feeding the goats and spending time with them.

How has this job changed your life? I have a lot more freedom now. Before my life was difficult. I was working everyday but some days I could not make enough money to feed my family. Now I have money to feed my family every day and I have some spare time to spend with my children and relax.
