Sanitation facilities that do not pollute the local environment are essential to halt spread of germs and disease. Polo (48) supports his family with his motor taxi earnings of around $3 a day. It’s just enough to cover daily household expense. Polo needs a loan to build a new comfortable toilet for his family. A modern latrine will ensure more comfortable living conditions and uncontaminated water. "A new toilet allows my family to feel more comfortable and safe", he says.

[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!

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.
