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

A loan helped to purchase silk thread, dyes, and materials for weaving.

Thanipha's story

Thanipha lives in a Khmer community in Surin province, She took her first Kiva loan in 2018 to buy more looms. At present, she has more than 3 looms that increase the capacity of her production each month.

Her business has been running well since then because Thai silk products have been trendy in the Khmer community and nearby provinces. Therefore, she applied for a Kiva loan once again to continue the business. The loan will be spent to buy silk thread, dyes, and materials for weaving. Moreover, it will encourage her to design various products made from Thai silk as well.

Significantly, in the future, she dreams of turning her place into a learning center to transfer and exchange knowledge on Thai silk weaving in the village.
