The story of Andi, son of Turimin :

I live in Karyamekar Bojong village, part of the Kawunganten district. My life is very simple. My parent work as laborers. In the harvest season, we reap the rice; in the fish season, we search for the fishes.

This loan is very helpful for my continuing education, and it can ease the burden of my parents. The distance from my home to school is about 1 kilometer and I go to school by bus. In this vocational school, I will learn automotive, because automotive is my favorite subject and hobby. After I graduate from this school, I want to work at an automobile assembly factory. Usually I use my free time to take a rest and study. Thank you so much for the loan from the Kiva program. This program is very helpful.
