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


Tawinwong's story

Tawinwong is a married woman living with her husband, children, and grandchild in a Kuy community of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. She basically earns income from weaving and selling silk cloth. She learned to weave from her neighbor because she desired to create a job where she could earn more income.

During this period, she needs a loan to invest in the business so she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye color, and materials for weaving silk cloth. Using silk products is prevalent and popular in the area, so it's a good opportunity to expand the business. The loan will enable her to afford materials for weaving.

Moreover, in the future, she dreams to own a small shop selling silk products in her village as well.
