Tedy's story

Tedy comes from the interior of the island of Borneo, precisely the village of Landau Panjang, Indonesia. He wanders alone to leave his parents and two brothers, to study management and harbor cruise commerce at Nusantara Maritime Academy, on the island of Java, in the city of Cilacap. The distance from his native village to the town of Cilacap is very far; he had to cross the sea of Java, which takes one to two days. The expectation of his parents is that in order to learn, Tedy will be diligent and quickly complete college. His parents made all of their efforts to help Tedy to get his dream, even though they are just rubber workers. Their income is uncertain because the weather is less friendly to the rubber workers. Tedy is very saddened by the condition of his parents, so he is determined to finish his studies quickly. He hopes, with a loan from Kiva investors, he can help overcome these difficulties. Tedy hope to quickly get a job at a shipping company.
