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

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

Oorathai's story

Joining the Kiva weaving program transformed Oorathai's life. She spent so many years working in the fields for meager pay. Between the financial literacy training and the extra income, she's in a completely new place after joining the Kiva weaving program. With her earnings, she renovated her house and built a special area dedicated to hammock weaving. She plans to make this her long-term income and to use it to fund her children's ongoing education.

This year, Oorathai’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 to provide for her family. Oorathai’s loan will also ensure that her work isn't impacted by the global pandemic. Especially in this time of global uncertainty, Oorathai is grateful for your support to continue empowering her journey!
