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

A loan helped to buy materials to make coffee and soft drinks for selling.

Panthip's story

Panthip is a married woman living with her husband, son, and daughter in a rural community of Surin province, Northeast Thailand. Generally, her family cultivates a rice farm and owns a small cafe selling coffee and soft drinks.

For operating the cafe, she learned from and was inspired by her older sister to run the business during free time from activities in her paddy field. During this period, she sought an opportunity to expand the business and then applied for the Kiva loan to buy materials to make coffee and soft drinks to sell.

The loan is very important to her in that it will enable her to provide sufficient materials for serving her customers. Moreover, it will support this local entrepreneur to create a job as well.
