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

A loan helped invest in raw materials to ensure she can do weaving work consistently and increase her income potential.

Kanjana's story

Kanjana, whose nickname is “Eoo,” lives in a rural village in the mountains of Phrae, Thailand. For Kanjana, hammock weaving has provided an increase in income that is much needed to support her family and an alternative to working in back-breaking slash-and-burn agriculture. She has two young children whom she cares for, and her income from weaving hammocks helps to cover household expenses.

Kanjana’s loan will ensure that her work isn't impacted by the global pandemic and that she is able to invest in raw materials to have steady weaving work throughout the coming year.

Especially in this time of global uncertainty, Kanjana is grateful for your support to continue empowering her journey!
