Bisesmus village is located in Laenmanen sub-district, Malaka Regency, East Nusa Tenggara. The village consists of 234 families. The majority of its residents work as farmers. The residents need to go through a long distance of 1.4 km for 1-2 hours to get water. They travel twice per day while carrying several jerry cans of water to meet the needs of clean water for consumption, washing clothes and dishes, raising livestock, and cultivating crops. In order to save time, some villagers decide to purchase water by allocating the majority of their unstable monthly income of Rp 350,000, sacrificing other necessities like education.
