A loan helped to buy a loom, silk thread, a shuttle, and dye for weaving silk cloth.


Sutinee's story

Sutinee lives with her parents, son, daughters, and daughter in law in a rural area of Surin province. Her family typically makes a living by planting jasmine rice and earns monthly income from selling silk cloth.

She learned weaving silk cloth from the self-help group in the village because she's needed to increase income for supporting her family. Basically, she's able to produce about 4-5 pieces of silk cloth per month and sells to a customer from the city who regularly comes to buy the product directly at her house.

To expand the business, she applied for the Kiva loan to buy more loom, silk thread, shuttle, and other materials for weaving the silk cloth.

The loan would fulfill her dream and support a woman in a rural area as well.


This loan is special because:

It helps women living in rural areas improve financial literacy and invest in their businesses.
