Ouan'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 other supplies for making silk skirts.

Ouan's story

Ouan lives with her daughter and grandson in a Khmer community in Surin Province, which is in northeastern Thailand. Her family cultivates rice on their farm and weaves silk cloth so that they can earn a living.

Ouan received a Kiva loan in 2019 and invested the funds into her silk weaving business, which is doing well so far. She is requesting another Kiva loan to purchase silk thread, dyes, and other supplies for weaving silk skirts. The loan will be very useful since she will be able to continue operating her business smoothly and acquire good-quality silk thread, which will help support other local women entrepreneurs and enable them to earn more income.
