Good Return will launch a new lending website in the near future. To simplify handover to the new platform, we have to cap the number of individual borrowers on this site. So, as an interim measure, you may choose to make a donated loan to SECDEP, our microfinance partner in the Philippines. SECDEP grants credit to poor women, usually in rural districts, enabling them to run a small enterprise as a way to escape poverty. Without its microfinance services, many have no access to capital to build a business. A loan donation to SECDEP will provide fresh funds that it will advance to members seeking finance for their small farms and businesses. Your support leverages their clients' skills and hard work, and assures sustainable returns for all.

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.
