Sa-Aem's story

Sa-Aem is a married woman who lives with her husband and children in a rural community in Surin Province, which is located in northeastern Thailand. Her family cultivates jasmine rice on their farm, but she also weaves silk cloth to sell in order to make a living. Her children have jobs in town so that they can earn income to contribute to the family’s expenses.

Due to its beauty, silk cloth is a popular local product, which motivates Sa-Aem to continue producing it. She learned to weave silk fabrics at a young age and now is capable of generating a sufficient income for her family. Sa-Aem is applying for a Kiva loan to sustain her business. She will buy silk thread, dyes, and other supplies for weaving silk cloth.

This loan will enable Sa-Aem to afford a sufficient amount of materials for weaving, which will allow this woman entrepreneur to continue her work. In the future, she wants her family to have a good quality of life.
