Rabiab's story

Rabiab is a married woman living with her husband, children, and grandchild in a Khmer community in the northeastern region of Thailand, the lowest income per capita region. Her family basically plants jasmine rice, raises silkworms, and weaves silk cloth for making a living. During this period, she has looked for an opportunity to develop the business to increase more income. Then, she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyes, and materials for weaving silk cloth. The loan will encourage her to afford the materials for weaving silk products and support local a woman entrepreneur as well.
