Prapapon's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to pay for yarn and ensure a steady flow of income for the year ahead.

Prapapon's story

Prapapon and her husband were able to completely escape the cycle of slash-and-burn agriculture through her weaving income over the past year.

She reported that she felt an immense amount of relief knowing that her income would be steady and that she and her husband would be safe from exposure to the dangerous chemicals used in the toxic slash-and-burn farming practices.

She is one of the most ambitious weavers - she is in the process of building a new house with the money she and her husband saved from her income last year! She is also paying for her daughter to attend university (her daughter is one of the first in her village to ever attend college!!).

All of their available funds are tied up in these incredible investments, so Prapapon needs this loan to ensure that she can continue her steady production and have all the supplies she needs in the coming year.
