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

A loan helped to purchase buffalo breeds to raise and sell.

Onuma's story

Onuma is a married local woman who lives with her parents, siblings, and children in a Kui community in Surin Province, Northeast Thailand. Her family makes a living by cultivating a jasmine rice farm and raising buffaloes.

Onuma's parents taught and inspired her to operate a buffalo farm. Since she also has the jasmine rice farm, she came up with the idea of using buffalo waste to make high-quality organic fertilizer for use on her rice farm.

Currently, she is seeking this loan to buy good quality buffalo breeds to raise at her farm. She also would like to renovate the farm. As a result, she applied for this Kiva loan to help her business grow and her dreams come true.

For Onuma, the loan is essential because it will allow her to expand her business. It will also help her as a local female entrepreneur. She hopes to earn enough money in the future to support her family, and particularly to pay for her children's educational fees.
