Samruan'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, dyeing color, and materials for weaving silk cloth.


Samruan's story

Samruan is a married woman living with her husband and child in a Khmer community of Surin Province, the northeastern region of Thailand.

Her family basically cultivates a rice farm, raises silkworms and weaves silk cloth for making a living. For weaving silk cloth, she learned from people in the community because she needed to increase more income for spending in her family.

During this period, she has looked for a loan to invest in the business. Then, she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyeing color, and materials for weaving silk cloth. Wearing silk cloth is prevalent in the area, so it's her opportunity for selling the product.

The loan will encourage her to afford the materials sufficiently for serving her customers as well as support the local woman entrepreneur.
