Pennapa'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.

Pennapa's story

Pennapa took out a loan last year in order to begin weaving hammocks full-time, and she has been amazed by the transformation it’s brought to her family! She and her husband have been able to build the foundation for a brighter future for their young children. She has a savings account, and she’s dedicated to making sure that she puts away funds to support a long-term education for both the kids, in addition to creating a more stable home for them as they grow up.

Pennapa even called her original Kiva loan "a lifeline." She said the biggest benefit was feeling a long-awaited sense of stability. She also felt grateful that she was able to provide for her mother without worrying about expenses.

This year, Pennapa’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. Her loan will also ensure that her work isn't impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. Especially in this time of global uncertainty, Pennapa is grateful for your support to continue empowering her journey!
