"Traditionally the woman’s role in the family is working at home, and managing household chores. But, since no one is taking the farming role, I took the initiative to continue working at my family farm. There are some difficulties for women to work on farms given the difference in physical strength compared to menI had to hire help for the heavy asks on the farm which adds to the cost of farming.
Being the woman owner of the farm though, I have the financial freedom to spend my own money. I also have the freedom and control over the farm and I don’t have to answer to a boss, since I am the sole owner. I realized this sense of financial freedom when I assumed responsibility for being the sole breadwinner in the family, given the passing of my husband. I continued farming even in his absence.
