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


Namfon's story

Namfon lives with her husband, parents, and daughter in a Khmer village in Surin province. Basically, her family earns income from selling silk cloth and working as a local constructor (building houses).

In particular, weaving the silk cloth, Namfon learned from her sister-in-law. She is very skillful in designing the silk cloth and is able to produce at least 10 cloths a month. Her customers come from different places both in the province and from the others like Khon Kaen, Kamphaeng Pet, and Srisaket provinces. During this period, the business is going well and she is able to generate sufficient income for her family's expense.

Hence, to develop the business, she sought a financial source and applied for a Kiva loan to buy more looms, silk thread, a shuttle, and dyeing color for weaving silk cloth. The loan will increase her capacity for producing products and fulfill her dream of achieving her business goal.
