A loan helped to buy a loom, silk thread, a shuttle, and dyeing color for making traditional silk cloth.


Somporn's story

Somporn lives with her husband and daughters in a rural village of Surin province. She earns income from working as a general contractor and selling silk cloth. She weaves silk cloth, which she learned to do from her sister.

Silk cloth is very popular in the area. People traditionally wear the cloth on special occasions like weddings and traditional ceremonies. Currently, weaving the cloth in her village is supported by the government, which gives her an opportunity to increase her income from the business.

Therefore, she sought and applied for this loan to buy a new loom, silk thread, a shuttle, and dyeing color for making the traditional cloth. The loan will be helpful for her business, as well as empower a poor woman in a rural area.
