Eseta Kolo

‘Eseta would like to build her own house. But to afford this she needs to generate more income from her tapa making business, the traditional printed cloth presented in marriage or wedding events in Tonga. At present she, her husband and children share a home with relatives. To resolve this challenge, ‘Eseta has applied for a loan to recapitalise her tapa making venture, and with more materials and accessories, boost her output and sales. She is confident that with a good client base in the local market, she can find customers for her increased production.

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.
