SPBD Tonga 14

The generosity of you and other supporters has caused Good Return temporarily to run out of individual loan applications. We are working with our microfinance partners to feature more of their women clients as candidates for Good Return funding. But until we can share their personal stories with you, we offer the alternative of lending directly to one of our partners.
South Pacific Business Development (SPBD) is our partner in Tonga. A loan to SPBD provides fresh capital so that it can provide more loans to its members. This allows their women borrowers to refresh stock in their small stores, or to buy supplies to start a small food business. We also work with SPBD to deliver financial literacy education, which helps the women leverage their loans, and create long-term, sustainable benefits for them and their families.

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.
