Sophy Oum

Goat Farmer

Age 28

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

What did you do before working with RAW? I stayed at home looking after my children.

What does your job involve? I am a community liaison but I also help look after the goats and plant vegetables.

What is your favourite part of your job? I like feeding the goats.

How has working with RAW changed you life? My life is much easier now. Before it was hard to feed my family. Some days we only had enough for one meal. I also had a lot of debt. Now I have a safe home for my family and I can start to pay off my debts.
