Wanphen's loan finished fundraising, but these other borrowers need your support

A loan helped to buy silk fabric, cloth and thread for making silk handbags.

Wanphen's story

Wanphen is a 56-year-old married woman living with her husband and three children in a small Khmer community in Surin province. Basically, her family earns income from growing jasmine rice and sewing silk handbags.

To make the silk handbags, Wanphen learned from a sewing shop in Surin city and then she decided to run the business in her hometown. For marketing, a regular customer from nearby communities and the city comes to buy directly at her house.

During this period, this silk product is trendy in the area and Wanphen plans to increase the number of these products. Therefore, she applied for the loan to buy more silk fabric, cloth and thread for making the silk handbags.

The loan will encourage her to increase the number of products, which will lead to her monthly income increasing as well. In the future, she dreams of having her own product brand and being well known.
