Editha Garsola

Like many rural women, Editha (66) runs a grocery store. These micro retail outlets sell items like coffee, margarine, soap, cigarettes and sweets. Editha knows that if her shelves were fully stocked, she can achieve takings of $40 day. But with little working capital,and with the family consuming stock in lean times, she needs an injection of funds. A loan to restock her shelves will restore earnings and ensure Editha can meet her family's needs.

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.
