Cultiveat People: Balqis, Farm Assistant
Balqis resides within the community of Kapar, just minutes from the farm. She walked up to the farm one fateful day to apply for a position, and was later hired as a general worker. Due to her quick wits, she has now been promoted to the Farm Assistant position.
She provides help around the farm, and focuses on the growing portion of the work. With a matriculation certificate on hand, Balqis hopes to continue her studies soon, but leaving the farm won’t be easy.
“I like it here, I have friends, it’s super fun.”

My favourite veggie (or fruit): “Tomato! Makan macam tu je.“
