Orathai'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.

Orathai's story

Orathai is a married woman living with her husband and children in a Khmer community of Northeast Thailand. Basically, she cultivates a rice farm and weaves silk cloth to make a living.

She learned how to weave silk cloth from their neighbour and has sold the silk cloth so far.

At this time she is looking for a loan to invest in the business because she needs to be responsible for the education fees for her child. Therefore, she has applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyeing colours, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan will enable her to afford materials for weaving silk cloth as well as support the female entrepreneur to create more jobs.

In the future, she dreams of owning a small shop selling silk products and have a better life.
