Alisi Toa

With four mouths to feed, Alisi To’a supplements her husband’s income by making tutu. This is the inner bark of the paper-mulberry tree that is used to make tapa, the traditional Tongan cloth. It is sun-dried then soaked, before being beaten into the thin pulp that becomes the finished fabric. Alisi could increase her output if she had the capital to buy more raw materials. She will use her loan to do this, and hopes to generate enough cash to ensure her children receive the care and education they need.

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.
