Ni Wayan Pejet lives alone in the middle of the farm area. Her husband passed away a long time ago and they have no children.

There is almost nothing for living. Ni Wayan Pejet works as a farmer for the farm owner. Due to her old age, she is only able to plant cassava and some grains that later will be exchanged by rice. “I was given Rp. 40.000 and I buy fish, if I have no money, I don’t” ,she said in Bali language. She had 2 pigs before, but all were gone, so she just does farming for living now.

Her home condition is miserable. There is only single room for sleeping and cooking. She sleeps on an old used sack with no mattress. The building condition is almost collapsed:

  • Ground floor
  • Tarpaulin wall
  • Asbestos roof
  • No electricity
  • No water source, only buy from neighbor

  • Mattress and Pillow
  • Daily need/cash for buying daily need
  • Cash support for building renovation (not permanent) because the land status ownership.

    Together with Wayan Tirta and his wife I visited Ibu Pejet, a nice old lady. We brought some food and small donation. The village head showed us the way.
    Although there is no water and no bathroom, she was happy with the new house.
