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

A loan helped to buy more looms, Thai silk thread, and dyes.

Thongdee's story

Thongdee is a 57-year-old married woman who lives with her husband, son, niece, and nephew. Her husband is a farmer. Her family is of the Kui ethnic group in Surin Province, Thailand.

In addition to planting jasmine rice in her paddy field, Thongdee typically earns income from weaving and selling Thai silk cloth to customers who are mostly from outside her community. They come directly to her home to buy Thai silk cloth.

During this period, the number of customers is increasing since the silk cloth is very popular in Thailand. For this reason, she needs loan to buy more looms, Thai silk thread, and dyes. The loan will help her produce more Thai silk products, which will lead to an increased income. Thongdee plans to allocate some of that income to support the education of her son, niece, and nephew.
