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


A loan helped to buy a portable thickness planer, electric drill, and Russian pine for producing furniture.


Phutsadee's story

Phutsadee lives with her husband and children in Surin province. Her family earns income from cultivating a rice farm, raising cattle, and making furniture.



For making the furniture, the business is going well and it is able to generate monthly income for her family sufficiently. However, she lacks some tools, such as a planer and an electric drill, to produce the furniture. In the past, she borrowed the tools and hired other people to do the job.



Then, to reduce the cost of production, she looked for a financial source and applied for the Kiva loan to buy a portable thickness planer, electric drill, and Russian pine for producing the furniture. The loan would help her business to reduce the cost of production and support a female entrepreneur as well.
