The story of Tri, daughter of Turisah:

My major is in accounting. With this knowledge and skill, I am sure that I can get a job. Making a new adaptation was a little hard for me. But it happened quickly because my friends are nice and also my teachers. I am happy to have many friends. Something fun in school for me is accounting lessons, but the hard thing is sport lessons.

I would like to thank Kiva lenders because of your help. With it, I can continue my study. With a good level of study I am sure that I can reach my dream.

My hometown is Brebeg village, Jeruklegi subdistrict, Cilacap Regency, Mid Java Province, Indonesia. The roads around my village are bad, with many holes, muddy and rocky. It’s difficult to pass by. My parents are poor farmers and their salary is low. It’s around Rp. 300,000 per month. The number of children in my family is three. They are Siti Mariah (24 years old), Pujiati (20 years old), me (14 years old). Only I am at school. This fund can improve the life of my family. It means that I can continue my study.

I will study about accounting for three years in this school (until graduated). I want to be a good accountant in my future. I also want to see my parents happy.
