Petrus, 19 years old, was born in Tual (Ambon), Maluku. His family lives in Galaidubu Village, Kepulauan Aru District. His father works as a farmer with a very low income (around 500,000 Indonesian rupiah per month) that covers their daily needs only. So his parents can’t help Petrus to continue his education.

Petrus wants to change his family’s future for the better. So he asked for this loan to pay for his education fees at the Maritime Academy, because he knows and imagines that, if he can finish his education in the Maritime Academy, he will find a good job in the shipping company and get a good salary too. Then he will help his parents to provide an opportunity for his siblings to get an education at a higher level like him.

Do you want to help Petrus make his dream come true?
