Nallaong's story

Nallaong is a married local woman living with her mother, children, and a grandchild in a Khmer community of Surin Province in Northeast Thailand. Her family generally operates a rice farm to make a living and they also weave silk cloth for selling.

Nallaong was taught and inspired by her mother about weaving silk cloth since she was young. She has experience in the occupation for more than 20 years.

She desires to follow her mother's path to increase her income by weaving silk cloth for sale and she has sought a way to improve her business. Therefore, she applied for the Kiva loan to purchase silk thread, dye colours, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan will offer her an opportunity to afford sufficient materials for her occupation as well as to support her as a local entrepreneur.

In the future, Nallaong wants to generate sufficient income for her family and to make the family happier.
