02 May, 2019

Heny Yulia Anabokay (42) is an ex Indonesian female labor in Malaysia for more than 5 years. Heny went to Malaysia since she was a teenager. After she came home, she married to Nikolas Nguru, a paddy field farmer 5 years ago and blessed with one child. His name is Yardy (4).

With her family, Heny decided to live in Kolobolon Village, Rote Ndao district, East Nusa Tenggara. Prior joined in TLM Foundation Productive Garden Program, Heny helped her husband to manage their paddy field and from the annual crops, they sold rice to fulfill their daily needs.

But besides the harvest was only once a year, sometimes their paddy fields had crop failure. Heny then decided to join TLM productive garden program.

Heny is grateful that since more than a year she attended TLM Foundation productive garden program, she got a lot of lessons through training and assistance how to grow various kinds of vegetables, beans, onions, cucumber and specially dragon fruits.

From gardening, Heny is now able to generate income IDR.1.500.000,- from selling dragon fruits. Heny could help her husband, Nikolas to install electricity in their home that had no electricity before.

In addition, since Heny grew vegetables by herself, she could save money because she doesn’t need to buy vegetable like she used to do. Heny also doesn’t need to go labor overseas because she already has a permanent income source in the village.

Heny is thanking TLM Foundation for providing this opportunity for people like her to live independently in the village.
