Wiset'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, dye colors, and materials for weaving and selling silk cloth.


Wiset's story

Wiset lives with her daughter in a Khmer community of Surin province, the northeastern region of Thailand. Basically, her family earns income from weaving silk cloth and selling it, and they also cultivate a rice farm to make a living.

For weaving silk cloth, she learned from and was inspired by her relatives. She has done this work since she was young because she needed to create a job to increase income for spending in her family. She is very skillful in weaving, so her product is very popular. During this period, she has looked for an opportunity to improve and expand the business and then applied for a Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving and selling silk cloth.

The loan will encourage this local woman to create more jobs and increase her income sufficiently for supporting her family. In the future, she desires to sustain this occupation as well as expand the business gradually.
