Saipin's story

Saipin is a local woman who lives with her children in a Kui community in Surin Province, the northeastern region of Thailand. Normally, her family makes a living by cultivating a jasmine rice farm and weaving silk cloth.

Saipin has taken the Kiva loan to invest in the silk weaving business and it has been running well so far. She wishes to advance, continue, and expand her occupation. Therefore, once again, she sought a loan to expand and continue her business by applying for a Kiva loan to purchase silk thread, dye colors, and materials for weaving silk cloth.

The loan will assist Saipin in purchasing sufficient materials for weaving silk cloth. It will also help her as a local woman entrepreneur. Furthermore, she intends to own her silk clothing shop in the village and assist her family in moving forward together.
