Yoy'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 color, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

Yoy's story

Yoy is a married woman living with her husband, daughter, and grandchild in a Khmer community of the Surin province. Her family earns income from growing jasmine rice and weaving silk cloth.

She took a previous Kiva loan to invest in the silk weaving business. Since that time, the business has been running well and she has been able to generate income for spending in her family.

Therefore, she applied for another Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth. She plans to allocate part of the loan to fix a loom and hire an assistant as well.

The loan will enable her to continue the business smoothly and increase her production capacity .
