Alakihihifo Pauu

Alakihihifo Pau’u has six children. Her husband is a wood carver and she supports him by weaving traditional costumes called taovala. These are worn by women and men on ceremonial occasions. To cover the family's immediate needs, Alakihihifo needs to raise capital for the wood carving business, which makes more profit than her weaving. She will use this loan to increase the volume and quality of the traditional products her husband makes. With more income, the couples hope to renovate their house.

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.
