Summary: 

Nipo (7 years old) is only one in the family who continues to go to a local government primary school. Both her brothers instead help their father to fish. Her father had a boat as well as a fishing net, but during cyclone Sidr, he lost his net. To buy a net, they had to take a new load from an NGO as well as borrow from a local businessman. In return, he sold his catch in advance to the local businessman. Now he is obligated to accept whatever price businessman set for his daily catch until the loan is paid off.
