Chom'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, dyeing color, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

Chom's story

Chom is a married woman living with her husband and sons in a Khmer community of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Her family cultivates a jasmine rice farm and weaves silk cloth for sale.

She has ever taken the Kiva loan to invest in the weaving business in 2019 and she appreciated the loan. Since that time, the business has been running well and capable to generate income sufficiently for spending in her family. Therefore, during this period, she applied for the Kiva loan to buy a new loom, silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth and sale.

The loan will encourage her to afford a new loom and sufficient materials for making silk cloth. Moreover, she has planned to allocate the income to spend on the education fee of her son as well.
