Sam's story

Sam Y., 53, is skilled at making furniture. His main activity is selling rattan cupboards and beds. He sells these products, which he and his wife make at home or they order from other rattan weavers who live in the village.

Sam Y. and his wife have three children, one of whom is married. Two of their daughters are employed: One has been working in the sewing industry for years and the other is a rattan weaver. In order to make additional income, Sam Y. is asking for a loan from Kiva to buy planks so that he can go on making beds for sale.
