19-year-old Elvi was born in Ketapang, West Kalimantan, and has five siblings. Her father is a tailor with an income of around IDR 2.000.000 per month (approx. USD 145), her mother is a housewife. Elvi’s other siblings still attend school, which makes it financially impossible to send Elvi to college. After she graduated from high school, Elvi worked at PT Gemilang Komunikasi Khatulistiwa as promotor but her salary was only IDR 265.000 (approx. USD 20). While working, she was searching for opportunities to continue her school. She found out about Bali WISE and decided to join. The free hospitality program with English lessons were very appealing and the ideal chance to enjoy further education.
