Kannika'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.

Kannika's story

Kannika lives with her children in the northeastern region of Thailand, the lowest income per capita region. Basically, her family cultivates a rice farm and weaves silk cloth to make a living.

For weaving silk cloth, she learned from her mother and since then she has woven silk cloth for selling. During this time, she has looked for a loan to invest in the business because she needs to increase her income to pay the education fees of her children. Therefore, she applied for a Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyeing colours, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan will support her to obtain sufficient materials for weaving as well as to encourage this woman entrepreneur to create more jobs.

In the future, she plans to improve the various designs of the silk products to respond to the needs of customers.
