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

A loan helped to buy tables, chairs, and materials for cooking Thai noodle soup.

Thongbai's story

Thongbai lives with her husband, son, and daughters in a Khmer community in the northeastern region of Thailand. Basically, she earns income from selling Thai noodle soup, and she regularly sells chili, garlic, and shallots at the local market near her village.

Especially in selling Thai noodle soup, the number of customers has been growing continuously since the beginning, so she desires to expand the business. She applied for a Kiva loan to buy more tables, chairs, and fans and a refrigerator to expand the resturant. Moreover, she has planned to allocate some amount of the loan to buy materials for cooking as well.

The loan will help her business to have more tables and chairs to serve her customers. In the future, she dreams of opening one more branch of the restuarant.
