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

A loan helped to buy fertilizers, bowls, spoons, and equipment for her family's rubber plantation.

Boontan's story

Boontan is a local woman who lives with her husband, children, and grandchildren in a rural community of Surin Province, Northeast Thailand. A rubber tree plantation is her family's main source of income.

Boontan was given the opportunity to work on a rubber tree farm of her relative, and then she grew rubber trees on her own land to generate more income. However, the income from the rubber plantation is insufficient to support her family, so her husband and son work other jobs.

Boontan has decided to invest more in the rubber tree farm by applying for a Kiva loan to purchase fertilizers, bowls, spoons, and rubber plantation equipment.

This loan will enable her to have a sufficient budget to invest in the farm and purchase needed equipment as well help local female entrepreneurs earn more money to help support their families.
