Sartoyo is a prospective student of Nusantara Maritime Academy who wishes to study marine engineering. Sartoyo lives in a small village, to the west of the town of Cilacap, called Tritih Kulon village. To reach the campus, he cycles for 1 hour's journey. Although he has to cycle, Sartoyo expects to complete the program of study.

Sartoyo's parents work as farmers whose income is not fixed. They gather the crops and then sell them and can only meet daily needs, so it is difficult to finance his studies. Sartoyo is willing to work on a ship as a ship technician professional. He also does not want to bother his parents, because his parents are too old to continue work.

Sartoyo is eager to get a loan from Kiva, to help pay for college expenses, so that he could complete his studies, get a job faster and his parents can be helped in their family economy.
