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

A loan helped to buy cow breeds for raising and selling.

Pikul's story

Pikul is a local, married woman living with her husband in a rural community of Surin Province in the northeastern region of Thailand. Basically, her family has a rice farm and raises beef cows to make a living.

In Northeast Thailand, Surin is one of the massive cattle markets. Thus, Pikul saw the opportunity to generate more income for her family and started to operate a beef cow farm in 2016. Her farm is small, and she would like to increase the number of cows during this period. She sought a loan to invest more in the business by applying for a Kiva loan to buy beef cow breeds to raise and sell.

This loan is really important for Pikul. Through this loan, she will be able to afford good quality breeds for her farm and be supported as a local woman entrepreneur as well. In addition, she desires to generate enough money for her family and dreams of seeing them having a better life.
