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

A loan helped to buy fertilizer, bowls, spoons, and equipment for her rubber tree plantation.

Jintana's story

Jintana is a single mother who lives with her children in a rural community of Surin Province, Northeast Thailand. Her family basically makes a living by cultivating a rice farm and growing rubber trees.

Jintana has been working on a rubber farm for many years, and the occupation is capable of providing her with a sufficient income, while also making a good profit. However, the COVID-19 pandemic has affected her business. At the moment, she needs to generate more income for her family to cover all expenses, especially for the education fees of her child who is studying in a school.

As a result, she requested a Kiva loan to buy fertilizer, bowls, spoons, and rubber plantation equipment. The loan will assist her to keep her business on track, as well as support this female entrepreneur. In the future, she desires to see her family have a better life.
