A loan helped to buy silk thread, dye colors, and materials to weave silk cloth.


Jandee's story

Jandee is a married woman who lives with her husband in a Khmer community in Surin Province, Northeast Thailand. Her family currently makes a living by farming rice and weaving silk cloth for sale.

Jandee's mother taught her to weave and dye silk, and create different textures on silk cloth since she was young. She was impressed by the beauty of silk clothes, so she decided to follow in her mother's footsteps.

She sought out a loan to expand her business in order to generate more income to spend on her family. Then she applied for a Kiva loan to purchase more silk thread, dye colors, and materials to weave silk cloth.

This loan will enable her to purchase enough material to weave beautiful silk clothes, as well as assist local entrepreneurs in earning more money for their families. In the future, she desires to own a silk cloth shop in her village and see her family happy.
