Lao's loan finished fundraising, but these similar borrowers need your support


A loan helped to buy raw materials to ensure her hammock weaving business continues smoothly despite global economic uncertainty.


Lao's story

As a widow, Lao is on her own to provide for her family. She's performed admirably and sent three of her four children on to higher education, but she still struggled every year before joining the Kiva weaving program.

This year, she had unexpected expenses that could have knocked her off her axis - but she said that her previous loan made it possible for her to "live and thrive." She plans to stay in the Kiva weaving program as long as she is able.

This year, Lao’s loan will help her invest in raw materials for hammock weaving and stabilize her income so that she can work steadily, manage her household budget and continue to grow her savings. Lao’s loan will also ensure that her work isn't impacted by the global pandemic. Especially in this time of global uncertainty, Lao is grateful for your support to continue empowering her journey!
