The majority of the population is engaged in agriculture, in this case gardening and they only relies on rainwater. Besides, most of them breed Kampong chickens and only use them as an entertainment. The maintenance, management, and production are not optimal so the results cannot be maximized or in other words the number of Kampong chickens that sold in the market are relatively small because the people have very limited knowledge/ skills to raise the chickens. This happened because the majority of the people there only sit in primary school. The main issue faced by the community is they lack of knowledge on how to make an electric egg incubator, do not have the skills on how to use an egg incubator, and failed to make a budget plan in breeding the chickens.
