Samruay'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 and dying color to make traditional Thai silk skirts.

Samruay's story

Samruay lives with her husband, son, and grandchild in a Khmer community of Surin province, the northeastern region of Thailand. Basically, her family makes a living by cultivating a small jasmine rice farm and weaving silk cloth for selling.

She took out a Kiva loan in 2018 and the loan was very helpful for her business. Therefore, she has applied once again for a Kiva loan to buy silk thread and dye color to make traditional Thai silk skirts. Moreover, she plans to allocate the loan to buy materials for cooking and selling in the village as well.

The loan will encourage her to continue and run the business smoothly as well as fulfill her dream to own a small shop selling silk products.
