Agus has had a dream of becoming a sailor since childhood. Agus lives in a rather remote area, far from the city. To go to school, he had a 5-km ride by public transport (bus).

Agus has concerns that he cannot achieve his dreams. Due to economic factors hampering this family, his parents work outside the city and move from here to there, while he lives with his grandparents. His parents make every effort to help Agus achieve his desire and goal to be a trustworthy sailor.

Through the Student Loan program from Kiva, Agus hopes to finish his education and get a job on a boat. He would be very grateful to the investors of Kiva, because thanks to their loans, he can cover the cost of college and not waste this opportunity.
