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


Maliwan's story

Maliwan is a married woman living with her husband in a rural 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.

During this period, she has looked for a loan to invest in the silk weaving business and then applied for the Kiva loan to purchase silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth for sale. For the occupation, she learned and was inspired by her neighbor since she was young and she has operated the business so far. The business is capable of generating sufficient income for spending in her family.

The loan is very important because it will enable her to afford good quality silk thread and will support this local woman to have a job during free time from activities in the paddy field.
