but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!


A loan helped to buy Thai silk thread and dye colour for weaving silk cloth.


Wilai's story

Wilai took out a first Kiva loan in 2018 to run a silk weaving business, and the business has been going well so far. Currently, she lives with her husband, who is working as a janitor in a small school.

Once again, Wilai applied for a Kiva loan to continue and expand the business. The loan will be spent to purchase silk thread and dye color for weaving the Thai silk cloth and making other silk products. Generally, Thai silk costume is prevalent in Surin and other nearby provinces, so the silk products are quite trendy. Therefore, Wilai has seen the opportunity to expand the business. Importantly, the loan will support an entrepreneur in a rural area as well.
