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

A loan helped to buy breeding beef cows to raise and sell.

Poy's story

Poy is an elderly local woman living with her children in a Khmer community of Buriram Province, the northeastern region of Thailand. In general, her family makes a living by cultivating a jasmine rice farm and raising cows.

Poy has been raising cows as a secondary occupation. This job has provided her family with additional income. The business is going well. She intends to increase the number of cows at her farm in order to meet the cattle market demand, resulting in more income for her family. Therefore, she has applied for a loan through Kiva to purchase beef breeding cows to raise and sell to the cattle market.

The loan will enable her to purchase breeding cows and increase her income as well as allow her to become a local woman entrepreneur. Furthermore, she hopes to further increase the number of cows at her farm in the near future in order to generate more income to cover all of her daily expenses and provide a better life for her family.
