Since Soleh was 10 years old, he has been living in Majenang, a small but growing village. However, the educational level of people in his village is really low. So that situation makes him, at 18 years old, want to continue his education at a higher school in Cilacap District. He realizes that he can’t ask for money from his parents, who are just workers who cultivate other people's fields, and there is one younger brother who is still in elementary school and needs more of his parents help for his education and fees. So Soleh is asking for a loan to continue his education at the Maritime Academy in Cilacap, because he heard from his friend that it is easier for alumni of that Academy to get a job in Indonesia. Please help him to make his dream come true so that he can help his youngest brother to continue his education in the future.
