Emanuel comes from a remote village, precisely in the village Raburia, Ende, East Nusa Tenggara region. With his marine geographic area, Emanuel is pushed to become a professional technician on a ship.
His parents hope they can help Emanuel, but their income is only enough for their daily needs. His father works as a farmer, and he has to fend for his four children.
Given the condition of his family, Emanuel hopes for the Student Loan Program from Kiva, in order to help finance his studies and ease the burden on his parents. He hopes to make happy the people he cares about, especially his parents.
Emanuel is very grateful to Kiva investors from all over the world because they are helping him to achieve a better future.
