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


Gaun's story

Gaun lives with her husband, son, and daughter in a Khmer community of Surin province. By occupation, her family cultivates a jasmine rice farm and sells silk cloth.

In order to sell the silk cloth, Gaun learned to weave from her grandmother when she was only 15 years old. In their area, the product is trendy and very famous, as most people love to wear silk cloth in traditional ceremonies (like wedding ceremonies, housewarmings, etc.). She is basically able to sell at least 10 silk clothes per month.

During this time, to expand her business, Gaun applied for a Kiva loan to buy silk thread, color dyes, and materials for weaving silk cloth. The loan would support her business. Gaun plans to allocate income from selling the product to repair her house as well.
