Being one of the measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19, isolation has also caused difficulties for families in rural areas. In addition to financial difficulties to cope with costs of planting land or beekeeping, now they find it hard to go to the market to buy seedlings, beekeeping equipment and seeds for planting.
