Heru's story

The story of Amalia, sister of Heru:

I have lived with my grandmother since I was born. My family's financial condition means we don't have our own house yet. When I was in sixth grade, my mother left us to work abroad. It has been 4 years since then, but there's no news about her. It's difficult to contact her too. During this time my brother also helped me in my education and living expenses. My brother tried to help me by following the Kiva program so I can go back to school to help my grandmother.

Meanwhile, my father went home to his parents and works as a laborer. I have a younger sibling who lives with me and grandmother. My grandmother has been the one who is taking care of us and funding our study. I hope I can do something for her. It should be great if I can keep on studying without being more of a burden for her. In the picture, Heru and his sister, Amalia.
