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


A loan helped to buy silk thread, dyeing color and materials for weaving traditional silk cloth.


Hwanyen's story

Hwanyen lives with her husband and daughter in a Khmer community in the Northeast region of Thailand. Basically, her family earns income from cultivating jasmine rice. Apart from cultivating the jasmine rice, to increase monthly income, Hwanyen sells traditional silk cloth as well. She learned to weave from her mother when she was 16 years old.

During this period, the business has been running well because most of the people in the area love to use products made of silk cloth. Therefore, Hwanyen looked for a financial source and applied for a Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyeing color and materials for weaving traditional silk cloth.

The loan would be very helpful for her business. In the future, she dreams of owning a small shop selling silk products in her village.
