A loan helped to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth.


Gaun's story

Gaun is a married woman living with her husband and daughters in a Khmer community of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Her family generally makes a living from cultivating a rice farm and weaving silk cloth to sell.

She has taken this Kiva loan to expand and invest in her silk weaving business, which has been doing well enough to generate a sufficient income for her family's expenses.

Gaun applied for this Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth. The loan will encourage her as a female entrepreneur to run the business more smoothly and create more jobs. In the future, she plans to develop a sales channel and open a small shop selling silk products inside and outside the community.
