Kritono comes from a remote village on the outskirts of the strait Segara Anakan, precisely in Kampung Laut, Cilacap. This is a geographic marine area, pushing Kritono to become a professional tekniksi on a ship.
His parents very much hoped to be able to help Kritono, but their income is only enough for their daily needs. His father only works as a farmer, as he has to support his eight children. Because of the financial condition of his family, Kritono is joining the student loan program of Kiva in order to help finance his studies and to ease the burden of his parents.
He hopes to make happy the people who love him, especially his parents. Kritono is very grateful to Kiva investors from all over the world, because they can help him to achieve a better future.
