Ravipan's story

Ravipan is a married local woman living with her husband, children, and her grandchildren in a rural community of Surin Province in the northeastern region of Thailand. Basically, her family cultivates a jasmine rice farm and weaves silk cloth to make a living.

Ravipan has spent her entire life weaving silk fabric. Every day, after she finishes activities in the paddy field, she returns home and continues to weave silk clothes. This job has provided sufficient income for spending in her family. However, she wishes to increase her family's income in order to pay for the education fees of her grandchildren, who are studying in primary school. Therefore, she sought a loan by applying for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan means a lot to Ravipan and will offer her an opportunity to improve her business and support local entrepreneurs. Even though she is an elderly woman, she wishes to continue working and provide a better life for her family.
