A loan helped to buy spare parts, steel, and motor oil for her garage.


Chootima's story

Chootima is a Thai woman who lives with her husband and daughter in a Kui community that is located in northeastern Thailand. Her family has been running a garage and a machine shop for over 10 years.

Chootima previously applied for a Kiva loan to buy a new screw air compressor for her garage. Her family used to work at a massive machine factory until they became skillful at repairing vehicles and working with steel. They returned to the town of Surin to start a garage business. When the COVID-19 pandemic spread, some customers were unable to pay for their repairs. During this time, Chootima applied for a loan to continue the business. She is now applying for a loan once again to purchase spare parts, steel, and motor oil.

The loan will allow her to continue the business smoothly and also assist other local entrepreneurs with generating a sufficient income.
