This is the story of Dina, daughter of Yatiman:

I live in Bringkeng village. My house is surrounded by rice fields. My father works as a laborer and the income is insufficient. I join with this program because the program is very supportive and I want to be a successful woman.

The distance from home to school is around 5 kilometers, and my father drives me to school. In this school I want to learn accounting because accountancy is easy to learn and more beneficial to find work in companies. I want to work in a bank. My expectation is that I can get a good job. My hobby is reading books.

I want to say thanks for this program and this loan so that I can continue my education.

In this picture are Mr. and Mrs. Yatiman and their daughter, Dina.
