Amphai'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 silk cloth for sale.


Amphai's story

Amphai lives with her daughters in a Khmer community of Surin province, the northeastern region of Thailand. Generally, her family cultivates a jasmine rice farm and weaves silk cloth to make a living.



She has sought for a loan to expand the silk weaving business because she needs more income for spending in her family. Therefore, she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth for sale. Regarding her occupation, she learned to weave from her parents and has operated the business for about 7 years.



The loan is very important to support her to run the business smoothly as well as it will encourage the local woman to have a job.
