Made Muriani, 15, is the middle child, in 9th grade. She has an older sister and a little brother in Kindergarten. Her older sister is a vocational senior high school of tourism graduate and had been working at a villa. Her sister managed to enter senior high school by taking a loan and then paid it back after she graduated.
Next year, Muriani is supposed to enroll into a senior high school, following her older sister’s footsteps. Unfortunately, she will have to drop out if she doesn’t get sponsored. Her sister had wanted to help her in taking a loan for her school expenses later. Sadly, her sister got furloughed due to the pandemic and no bank would issue loan offer amidst the pandemic.
Muriani’s older sister has been the bread winner of her family. Her sister now works as a laborer until tourism reopens in the island. Both of her parents only graduated from primary school.
