Kien's family is one of the poor households in their commune. His family has no land for cultivation in order to improve their income. Kien’s parents got divorced. Currently, Kien is living with his grandparents and his father. Kien's father is the sole breadwinner. He works for hire to make a living. His job does not bring him a stable income because it depends on the local labor market. His yearly income about 870 USD. The grandfather is serious ill, therefore the grandmother has to stay at home to take care of her husband and Kien.
Kien is in normal health condition.
His father’s monthly income is low and unstable which is not enough to cover basic living costs and school fees for Kien. With such low income, Kien might be at risk of dropping-out of school so the local authorities introduced this case to Holt for support.
