Sri wishes to be a student of the Academy of Maritime Archipelago. She will take the Nautical program in accordance with the education stream she took at high school. Her father works as a farmer making only coconut (brown) sugar, while her mother sells vegetables around the village, helping her husband to provide for their day-to-day needs and sometimes what they earn is still not enough for that.

Both parents want Sri and all their children to get a good education, for the sake of their future. Sri is the second of three children and hopes to be the one who is expected to complete her studies. Due to family circumstances and the expectations of her parents, Sri is applying for a loan from Kiva, to help her pay for her studies. Sri is hoping to quickly finish her studies and quickly get the job she aspires to, as a captain of a ship.
