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

A loan helped to purchase silk thread, dyeing color, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

Wansri's story

Wansri is a married woman living with her husband in a Khmer community of Northeast Thailand. Her family cultivates a jasmine rice farm and weaves silk cloth for selling.

Wansri learned silk cloth weaving from her mother from when she was young, she also learned from the occupational group in her villages, so she is very skillful in weaving and designing the silk cloth.

She has looked for an opportunity to expand the business. Having applied for the Kiva loan, it will help to buy silk thread, dyeing color, and materials for weaving. Moreover, she will also spend some amount of the loan to pay for hiring labor.

The loan will be very helpful for her business to afford sufficient materials for production. In the future, Wansri dreams of owing a small shop selling silk products in her village.
