Phai TAT

Phai (48) supports her family of four children by cultivating rice, cashews and breeding fish. But their $5 is barely enough to cover day-to-day costs, far less save for known but still large seasonal expenses. As another rice crop matures, Phai requests a loan to hire workers to help harvest it. She is confident its yield will pay for improvements to their house, and eventually let them save enough to extend their paddy field.

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.
