Fighting for a better future? We need your help.

Creating a more equitable world takes a lot of time and energy, but at Kiva we’re in it for the long haul. 100% of money lent on Kiva goes to funding loans. That means we rely on donations from people like you to make this work possible. For a limited time, if you donate $35 or more, a $25 bonus will be added to your account (you’ll get an email once it’s there).

Ronald's story

Ronald was born in Dobo 18 years ago. His father is a poor farmer in a very small village, part of Sumatra Island, Indonesia. With his six siblings, of course it is not enough with his father's income of only 500,000 IDR a month. Ronald’s dream is to be an expert in port officer administration. Because Indonesia is an archipelago country, he knows that there will be a lot of jobs in his country.

When he heard about the Maritime Academy Nusantara in Cilacap, then he wished his dream to continue his education there could come true. Ronald asks your help to make his dream come true by using the loan from you, so he can help his parents to give an education for his other siblings, to make their life better in the future.
