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

A loan helped to buy a cow to breed and sell.

Maliwan's story

Maliwan lives with her daughter and grandchildren in a rural community of Surin Province, Northeast Thailand. She earns a living by growing jasmine rice and raising cows. She raises her cows naturally on her rice field and produces organic fertilizer from cow waste to use on her farm. Maliwan wants to increase the number of cows she raises so that she can meet growing market demand. That is why she is requesting this loan through Kiva, which she will use to buy and raise more cows. She can then generate more income for her family and pay for the education of her grandchildren.

The loan will allow Maliwan to afford good quality cows while also assisting local entrepreneurs. In the future, she wants to provide a higher standard of living for her family.
