Sukarman's story

Sukarman is only a temporary worker who does not have a regular job. His income depends on whether or not there are any construction projects. His wife tries to help raise funds by selling “mendoan” (a type of soybean cake) on the side of the road. Because of limited economic circumstances, Sukarman is applying for a loan through Kiva's Student Loan program for the future of his child, Agung. Agung has just graduated from junior high and he wants to learn more at a vocational school. Despite having a situation like this, Agung steeled himself to continue his studies so he can at least graduate from vocational school, after which he can get a job to help his parents and younger siblings. In the picture are Agung and Sukarman, his father.
