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

A loan helped to buy silk thread, dye colors and a loom for weaving silk clothes.

Orathai's story

Orathai lives with her husband, children and grandchildren in a rural area of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Her family basically cultivates rice, like the others in the area.

Apart from their activities in the paddy field, Orathai learned to weave silk clothes from the occupational group in her village. Now she weaves and sells silk clothes as a secondary job to increase income. She was looking for a loan to expand her business, so she applied for this Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye colors and a loom for weaving.

The loan will be helpful to her to have sufficient capital to invest in the business, and it will help to fulfill her dream to have a better life in the near future as well.
