This year Daud got into the Nusantara Maritime Academy. He took the program of management and commercial shipping from ports. His father is long dead; he now lives with his mother and two brothers in a village in the Aru Islands, Maluku Tenggara, Indonesia. His mother works as a farmer and she is just amazing, but has very limited income, only enough for the needs of daily meals. As a single parent, his mother hopes Daud is getting his education for the future and will help his brothers.

Due to his mother's expectations, Daud has ventured to ask for a loan from Kiva, to finance his education through to completion. He just wants to finish his education and become a professional employee at a port. Daud really hopes for the support of Kiva investors.
