A loan helped to buy silk thread, dyes, and materials for weaving silk cloth.


So's story

So is a married woman living with her husband and grandchildren in a Khmer community of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Basically, her family makes a living by growing jasmine rice and weaving silk cloth.

So learned weaving silk cloth from her parents since she was young, and she is very skillful in weaving. During this time, she has looked for a loan to invest in the occupation, so she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyes, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan will support So to continue the business leading to increased income for the local woman, as well.
