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

A loan helped to buy native chickens for raising and selling.

Nongrak's story

Nongrak is a local married woman. She lives with her husband and children in a rural community of Surin Province in Northeast Thailand. At present, she works in a factory with her husband for a living and operates a poultry farm as a secondary job.

Nongrak's family has to work hard to raise their children. Since her parents had their own poultry farm before, she found a way to increase her income by following her parents' path.

During this period, she sought a loan to expand her business. Therefore, she applied for a Kiva loan to purchase more native chicken breeds and renovate the old chicken coop.

The loan is very important for Nongrak, which will help her afford sufficient things to improve her occupation as well as support a local entrepreneur to have a job. From now, she wants to make her family happy and have a better life standard.
