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


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


Om's story

Om lives with her parents and children in Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Her family cultivates a rice farm and weaves silk cloth to sell.

Currently, she needs a loan to invest in the silk cloth business, so she applied for a Kiva loan to buy a loom, silk thread, and dyes for weaving silk cloth. She has been working in this occupation since 2002, so she is very skillful in designing various patterns.

The loan will really support this local woman entrepreneur in continuing this occupation, and will allow her to have a job during the off-season of growing rice.
