Ridolof's story

Ridolof is currently studying in the Nautical program at a maritime school. He comes from a small village on the island of Maluku, a rather small native village. Ridolof is the fifth child of six children whose parents have been divorced since 2009, when he was in junior high school. Given the family's limited economic condition, Ridolof had no plans for college because his mother, who works only as a maid, must finance the education of Ridolof and his sister who is still in school. Ridolof hopes to obtain a loan from Kiva so he can continue his studies and realize his aspiration to be a professional sailor. This will make his mother and younger siblings happy. Ridolof thanks the lenders of Kiva who make it easier for him to achieve a better future.
