Mercy Abisan

Mercy (47) has a business selling bbq snacks, from which she can make $5 on a good day. But even with her husband’s income as a motorcycle driver, they still struggle to cover their three children’s daily needs and school costs. Mercy is an optimist, and seeks a loan as working capital to expand her snack stall. With a recapitalised business, Mercy hopes to boost her earnings so that she can secure her family’s future.

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.
