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

A loan helped to buy Thai silk thread, dying color, and materials for making traditional Thai silk skirts.

Hia's story

Hia lives with her sons in a Khmer community of Surin province, in the northeastern region of Thailand. Basically, her family makes a living by planting jasmine rice and weaving silk cloth for selling.

She has taken the Kiva loan to invest in the silk cloth business since 2018, and the loan was able to generate more income sufficiently for spending on her family. Therefore, Hia applied once again for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye color, and materials for weaving traditional Thai silk skirts for selling.

The loan will support her to run the business continuously and smoothly. It will also help Hia to have a better life.
