Thongmuan's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!

A loan helped to buy native chicken breeds and feed for raising and sale.

Thongmuan's story

Thongmuan lives with other three family members in a Kuy community of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Her family makes a living by growing rice and raising native chicken.

She has experienced raising native chicken for more than 8 years and the occupation is capable to generate income sufficiently for spending in her family. During this period, she has looked for an opportunity to develop the occupation, so she applied for the Kiva loan to buy native chicken breeds and feed for raising and sale. She will also spend the loan on renovating the chicken farm.

The loan is very important for her occupation because it will support Thongmuan to afford good quality chicken as well as encourage the local women to create more jobs.
