Yosef's father works as a motorcycle taxi driver with a motorcycle in the city, and his mother had died some time ago. Yosef was the first child of three siblings; his father must now take care of them without a mother.
Because his father's income is minimal, Yosef is unable to continue his studies and is concerned. With these conditions, Yosef did not want to bother his father because their income is uncertain. Yosef wants to get a loan from Kiva to help pay for college later so that he can finish his studies and get a job quickly, and can help his sisters to attend school, according to his father's expectations.
