Sukiyem's story

Sukiyem is a peasant who has a very minimal and uncertain income that varies depending on the harvest and the weather. Sukiyem's children cannot go to school because of the family's minimal economic resources. Sukiyem's only hope is her son Enggi. Sukiyem decided to take a student loan from Kiva so that Enggi can finish school and get a job. Enggi lives in a barren and hilly area. He attends a vocational school. He has only two brothers, but because of their limited economic resources, his sister could not attend school. Enggi is afraid he would be like his brother who has dropped out of school. With the Student Loan program, he is hoping to realize his dream as a computer technician. In the picture are Enggi and Sukiyem, his mother.
