Thomas's story

Thomas is 20 years old and comes from the Belu District in Atambua. Belu is on the border of Indonesia and Timor Leste. Belu is part of Indonesia, with a lot of small harbors. Thomas' father works as a driver and sometimes is a car mechanic with an income of only 500.000 IDR a month, which covers just the basic needs of his family. Thomas has four siblings. The three youngest can’t continue their school and his brother had to drop out a few years ago because his father couldn't pay the educational fees for all of his children. Thomas heard that Maritime Academy in Cilacap gives student loans for poor families like his. So, he went to Cilacap and asked for a loan from Kiva through YSBS, in the hopes that with the loan, he can continue his studies in higher education. His dream is to work back in his village where there are a lot of Seamanship Companies. Then he can help his parents improve his family's living conditions. Thomas needs a loan from you.
