Trom'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, dyes, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

Trom's story

Trom is a married woman living in a Khmer community with her husband and grandchild. Basically, her family makes a living by raising silkworms and weaving silk cloth for sale.

For weaving silk cloth, she learned from people in the community because she needed to increase more income for spending in her family. The business has been running well due to wearing silk cloth is prevalent in Surin province.

Trom saw the opportunity to expand the business, so she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyeing color, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan will support her to afford the materials sufficiently as well as encourage the local woman entrepreneur to have more income.
