Paulus's story

Paulus is currently a student who is taking the program 'nautical science', in a marine academy, namely Maritime Academy Nusantara. He comes from a small village in East Nusa Tenggara, Sallu village to be exact. Paulus is the first child of five children, his father works as an ordinary farmer, his mother is a part-time teacher with minimal income. Given that economic conditions are not enough, Paulus has plans for college. But his father works as a farmer and his mother a teacher, and they must fund studies for the four siblings who are still in school. Paulus hopes that by obtaining a loan from Kiva, he can continue his studies and his dream to be a professional sailor can be realized, in order to make his mom and his sisters happy. Thanks from Paul to Kiva lenders, who can make it easy for him to achieve a better future.
