Sothy VOR

Fishing is not an easy life and requires investment in good equipment. It provides an income for Sothy, her husband provide and their four children. Their joint income of about $10 per day is not enough for them to buy more gear. As the prime fishing season approaches, Sothy (36) requests a loan to buy nets and other equipment. This loan will provide a way of earning more and Sothy hopes to have enough left over to improve her living conditions.

[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.
