Watty is 41 years old. She lives with her husband and their four children in Cilincing, Jakarta, Indonesia.
Every day, she sells nasi uduk to get income. Nasi uduk is a rice with a unique flavor.
She requested 10,000,000 Indonesian rupiah to buy rice to produce more nasi uduk than she usually does. The income that she makes is used to pay their children's school fees. She also hopes she can send her husband to be a laborer in Brunei so that he can help their family to create more income and it can be used to send their children to school.
