Simon's story

Simon comes from the Aru Islands, specifically from the village of Dobo. This is an area in eastern Indonesia, which is in the archipelago with the islands connected by small boats. Because Simon comes from the islands, he wants to be a ship technician. He is currently studying at the Academy of Maritime Nusantara in the Teknika program. However, Simon is worried that he will be unable to complete his studies due to the economic conditions of his underprivileged family. His parents are separated. His father is dead and his mother does not have any special skills for work. Right now, his brother who works at a store, finances Simon's education. Simon hopes to get a loan from Kiva so that he can take care of the problem of the cost of tuition. Simon hopes the lenders will help him realize his dream of working as a ship tekniksi, being a professional and making his mother happy.
