Rudy will enter the Nusantara Maritime Academy (AMN) this year. He will be a student who takes the Management program, Commercial Shipping and Port Administration. Rudy comes from a village in Dobo, Aru Islands, Maluku Tenggara Timur, eastern Indonesia. His parents work as simple farmers. Their very limited income is just enough to meet everyday needs. As a parent, his mother wishes for Rudy to get his education for the future and to help his brothers. Due to his mother's expectations, Rudy ventured to apply for a loan from Kiva to pay for his education until completion. He wants to get out of college and become a professional employee in a harbor. Rudy really hopes for the support of Kiva investors.
