Katiola Tokotaha

Katiola Tokotaha and her family survive largely on her weaving income. She wants to improve their standard of living, but knows she must sell more of her woven crafts to do this. If she is to increase sales, Katiola needs to boost her production. So she has requested a loan to finance raw materials such as native fibres, and to let her hold a wider range of completed items for sale. With this fresh working capital, and continued hard work, Katiola hopes to increase turnover, and have more cash to spare for her family’s wellbeing.

[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.
