Kodchanipha's story

Kodchanipha is an incredible woman. Although she was unable to go to school beyond sixth grade, she has been remarkably dedicated to giving her children a better life. She worked in the slash and burn fields for many years before she found the opportunity to weave hammocks and help her family advance in the world.

With her increased income from hammock weaving, she has already sent one of her daughters to college! She also built a new house for her family from her hammock earnings. Kodchanipha and her husband broke their family free from the cycle of extreme poverty and want to ensure that their children have every opportunity to live up to their potential.

Kodchanipha’s loan for more weaving materials will also ensure that her work isn't impacted by the global COVID-19 pandemic. This loan will help her stabilize her income for the coming year so that she can budget for important priorities like the children’s education. Especially in this time of global uncertainty, Kodchanipha is grateful for your support to continue empowering her journey!
