Prakop's story

Prakop is a married woman living with her husband and child in the northeastern region of Thailand. Her family basically cultivates a rice farm, raises silkworms, and weaves silk cloth for selling.

Prakop needs to increase her monthly income for spending on her family, so she has looked for an opportunity to develop her occupation. Then, she applied for the Kiva loan to buy silk thread, dyes, and materials for weaving silk.

The loan will encourage Prakop to have the materials for weaving continuously. Moreover, it will make her dream come true to own a small shop selling silk products in her community.
