Rohim
Rohim is the youngest child of three in his family. He is 18 years old and just finishing his vocational school in Cilacap. His father is only a merchant in a traditional market and this situation makes him worry that he can’t continue his education like his siblings who only finished secondary school. He wants to be a sailor and have an opportunity to work on a big ship like an international freighter or cargo ship, but his parents don't have enough money for him to continue his education. He is requesting a loan to pay for his education, so he can help his parents in the future.
