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

A loan helped to buy supplies and yarn to weave hammocks consistently through the coming year.

Kaesinee's story

Kaesinee, or as her friends call her, “Kang,” lives in a rural village in the mountains of Phrae Province, Thailand. Like many men in her community, her husband had to move overseas to find work as a laborer, while she remains home with her young child.

Kaesinee has been making hammocks for about four years now and has become very skilled. She says, “For me, weaving hammocks is almost as relaxing as lying in them!”

Hammock weaving has allowed her to contribute to her household income, increase her confidence, as well as balance watching over her young child while being able to work from her home. Kaesinee hopes that her increased income will help her husband return home.

This loan will help Kaesinee stabilize her hammock weaving income by ensuring she has supplies and yarn to weave consistently through the coming year.
