19-year-old Dewi is originally from Denpasar. She is the youngest child in her family. Her father works as a driver, earning around USD 8 – 15 a day. After having graduated from high school in July 2017, Dewi wanted to continue her studies on university level but due to the limited income her father earns, she had buried that dream and found a job instead. She used to work as a shopkeeper, for a salary of approx. USD 54 per month which she gave back to her parents to pay off her family loan to the Bank. Dewi received information about the Bali WISE program from her friends who were joining Bali WISE themselves. Being inspired by their experience, she joined us as well and works hard to improve her skills to make her family proud of her and have better chances for her future.
