Lineti Talakai

Like many Pacific islanders,Lineti Talakai (52) has traditional weaving skills. She wants to exploit her expertise to earn money and help support her four children. Her husband's wage as an accounts clerk doesn’t fully cover the family daily needs. Lineti has applied for a loan to buy more yarn and other materials, to increase her output and the income she can make. She is confident that by expanding her production, she will be able to boost sales. Lineti hopes that higher income will help improve their children’s education and living conditions.

[loanrecipientname] has made the last loan repayment. Over recent months, your funds were used to boost their business and contribute to the family budget. Extra capital generates higher income, and this has helped [loanrecipientname] start their journey out of poverty. We know from experience that once any household has some cash to spare, it will be spent on the children – providing more food, buying needed medicine, and keeping them in school. [loanrecipientname] is very grateful for your support!

Cambodia Loan Repayments
 
Most loans in Cambodia are repaid in a single final installment. In this case, you will receive only one repayment notification instead of monthly updates. This is because many of TPC's clients are farmers and are only able to repay their loan after they have sold their seasonal harvest.
