Ari hopes to be a student of engineering science in shipping at Nusantara Maritim Academy. Ari lives in a small village, to the west of the town of Cilacap, Jeruklegi village. To reach the campus, he has to take a 1-hour trip by motorcycle. He hopes to complete the program of study, but he has concerns about the cost of these studies.

Ari's parents work as farmers whose income is not fixed and can only meet the needs of day-to-day living, so the difficulty is to finance his studies. Ari wants work on a ship as a ship 'tekniksi' professional. He also did not want to bother his parents, because his parents have to pay for his sister's schooling.

Ari wants to get a loan from Kiva to help pay for college expenses, so that he could complete his studies, get a job faster and his parents can be helped with their economic situation.
