Marintiniasih is from Karangasem, East Bali, and has two young sisters and one young brother. Her father works as a farmer and her mother is a cook’s assistant in a local restaurant in Denpasar. The family’s income is around IDR 1,500,000 (approx. USD 110). Luckily, Marintiniasih could continue her education in senior high school because she got help from EBPP (East Bali Poverty Project). After she graduated, Marintiniasih wanted to continue and go to university but since her parents already pay for her sister and brother, it was impossible to finance her further studies as well. That is why Martiniasih joined Bali WISE to get more skills to find a good job and being able to help her parents.
