Olan's story

Olan is a 19-year-old student. He is living alone and away from his parents. Olan's parents live in a remote village in rural Sepauk, Sintang, Indonesia. His father works as a laborer only on a rubber plantation; his income is not fixed. The income of rubber labourers is inadequate because the price of rubber is very low at this time. His parents want their children to be in school for their future happiness. Thanks to his parents' encouragement, Olan is determined to study at the Academy of Maritime Nusantara, as Olan's ideal is to work at a port in Indonesia.

Due to the economic conditions of his parents, who are not permanent workers, Olan volunteered to seek a student loan from Kiva in order to relieve the burden on his parents and continue his studies. Olan is very grateful to the lenders from around the world, who would help him in his studies, although he does not personally know them.
