Iwan is a prospective student of Nusantara Maritime Academy (AMN). He is 18 years old, and he lives alone and away from his parents. Iwan's parents live in a remote village in rural Benjuring, Dobo, Aru Islands, eastern Indonesia. His father works as a farmer whose income is not fixed. The income of farmers relies heavily on weather conditions and seasons. His parents want one of their children to attend school. That is a happy future for Iwan; Iwan's brother works as a fisherman. Thanks to his parents' encouragement, Iwan is determined to learn in the program of Management and Harbour Administration in Commerce at AMN. The ideal for Iwan is to work in a large port in Indonesia.

Due to economic conditions (his parents have no fixed income), Iwan volunteered to request a student loan from Kiva in order to ease the burden on his parents and continue his studies. Iwan is very grateful to the lenders from around the world who will help him with his studies, even though he is not able to get to know them personally.
