Seethong's story

Seethong is an elderly woman who lives in a Kui community of Surin Province, the northeastern region of Thailand, with her children and grandchildren. In general, her family earns a living by cultivating a jasmine rice farm and weaving silk cloth.

Seethong learned how to weave silk clothes from her mother since she was young. She also admires the beauty of silk, which has encouraged her to continue weaving silk clothes until now. Her family's income is increased as a result of the occupation.

Seethong wants to keep up with this business and grow it. Therefore, she applied for a loan through Kiva to purchase silk thread, dye colors and materials for weaving silk cloth. The loan will allow Seethong to purchase necessary materials for her occupation while also assisting her as a local woman entrepreneur.

In the future, she hopes to provide a good life for her family and have her own silk cloth shop in the village.
