Lasmi's story

This is the story of Hartini, daughter of Lasmi:

I chose accounting because I am sure this will bring me toward my dream. Making a new adaptation with new conditions at school is maybe a little bit hard for me, but it’s ok. I can overcome. Some fun things for me are having many friends and studying with friendly teachers.

I would like to thank the Kiva program. My family was helped, so I can continue my study in spite of my family being poor.

My hometown is Brebeg village, Jeruklegi subdistrict, Cilacap Regency, Mid Java Province, Indonesia. The roads around my village are bad, with many holes, muddy and rocky. It’s difficult to pass by. My parents are farmers. Their salary is low and not enough to fulfill the needs of us. Their salary is around Rp. (Rupiah) 200,000 per month.

The number of children in my family are six. They are Lasimin (35 years old), Lasinah (33 years old), Haryati (29 years old), Turiman (26 years old), Endang Susiati (19 years old), and me (16 years old). I am the only child who is studying at school. With this loan, I can go to school again, and I hope I can reach my dream. My family is very grateful to Kiva.

In this school, I will study about accounting lessons. I want to get a job as an accountant and can help my parents.
