Lineni Tafolo

Lilieni Tafolo seeks a loan to help grow her sewing business. At 56, she lives with her husband and some of their children and grandchildren. She has been able to apply her seamstress skills and generate some extra income for her family. Lilieni will use her loan to buy more fabric, threads and garment accessories to boost her workshop’s output. She hopes this will assure a brighter future for her grandchildren.

[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.
