Emely Lustria

Emely and her husband work together to support their family. He grows vegetables and she hawks them to local villagers. Their income is under $4 a day. Emely (34) requests a loan to buy fertilisers and tools to improve their crop, and stock produce from other farmers while their own vegetables are growing. She dreams her two children will finish their studies, and that one day she could have enough volume to supply other retailers in her town

[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.
