Elisabeth's story

Elizabeth was born in the village of Laung, Kapuas Hulu, West Kalimantan. She was the first child of three brothers. Her father is a rubber farmer whose income is uncertain. Elizabeth wants to go back to school. Her dream is to became expert in shipping and transportation management. Currently, Elizabeth is a prospective student at the Academy of Maritime Nusantara (AMN), in the program of Commercial Shipping and Harbor Management. Elizabeth chose AMN because her parents can not afford tuition and there is a student loan program because there is Kiva. So Elizabeth can achieve her goals without burdening her parents and can provide greater opportunities for younger siblings to attend school. This program gives great hope for her and her family. They are very happy because Elizabeth can attend lectures and achieve her goals. Elizabeth said, "But the excitement and hope is still dependent on the kindness of all of you. I depend on your generosity to lend me money for school fees. I promise to return it [after] I've graduated and am working. For your generosity, I say thank you."
