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

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

Yam's story

Yam lives with her husband, daughters and son in a Khmer community of Surin province. Basically, her family cultivates jasmine rice that is a famous rice variety in the area.

Because she has to take care of the education fee for her daughter, she decided to learn to weave silk cloth from her elder sister to increase more income.

The silk cloth is very popular in the Khmer community especially. People in the area love to wear it regularly in a special ceremony or event such as a wedding ceremony and other auspicious events.

Therefore, it's an opportunity for the business. So Yam applied for the Kiva loan to buy a loom, silk thread, shuttle, and dyeing color for weaving silk cloth.

The loan would fully support Yam to improve her business as well as to support education for her daughter.
