Hola Palanite

Weaving is part of the way of life of most Tongan women, and for Hola Palanite it is the means to support her two children. The family shares a cramped house and struggle to meet their daily needs. Hola takes native pandanus leaves and fibres, and weaves them into traditional mats, containers and furnishings. She is sure she could sell more goods if only she had more materials to work with. Hola will use her loan to buy these extra inputs, and increase her weaving production to boost the family’s income

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.
