Sophea Yun

As a single mother, Sophea is the sole carer for her two children. For 17 years she has provided financial security for her family through her small business, making jewellery, bags and souvenirs. In 2013, she was hit by a car and broke her leg. With no choice but to stay at home, Sophea found a way to continue her business by working from home. She participated in SHE business training and by learning how to track her expenses, Sophea realised she could pay herself a salary. After graduating, she established two saving wallets, one for herself and another for her repayments to LOLC. She now works to enable other Cambodian women to work from home making products for her business.

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.
