Sukanya'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 fix the farm and to buy a cow breed to raise and sell.

Sukanya's story

Sukanya is a married local woman living with her husband and children in a rural community of Surin Province in the northeastern region of Thailand. Her family basically cultivates a jasmine rice farm and raises beef cows for sale to make a living.

The main occupation in Sukanya's village is cultivating a rice farm and, also, raising cows for sale. The cattle market around the area is one of the massive markets in Northeast Thailand.

Sukanya desired to increase the number of cows at the farm and sell them to generate more income to cover her family's expenses.

Thus, Sukanya sought a loan to improve the business by applying for a Kiva loan to purchase materials to fix the farm and buy beef cow breeds to raise and sell.

The loan will offer Sukanya an opportunity to afford good quality beef cow breeds and materials to renovate the farm, as well as support the local entrepreneurs to earn more income.

Moreover, Sukanya wants to be capable of taking care of her family to have a better life.
