Situated in the coastal plain areas, the lifestyles of community members in Thalokapo subdistrict in the past were tied to land and water. The main occupation in the community for both Thai Buddhists and Muslims is rice farming. Almost every household will have a small vegetable garden for household consumption. Some households make a living by fishing in canals, raising sea bass, black tiger shrimp, and white shrimp. The generosity between Thai Buddhists and Malay Muslims was not framed by religious or ethnic divisions. The scenes of reciprocity and collaboration between each other are usual. When the unrest occurs in the area, some community members have migrated outside the area due to fear of unrest and being unable to work in the community. During the past decade, community members came together and founded a community enterprise, Ban Tha Dan curry paste which generated income to community members including youth, women and men, and the elderly. However, the business cannot expand and scale up to include more people due to the lack of sustainable business model and capacity to reach new market opportunities.
