Investing in Social Enterprise

We see investment into social enterprise ventures as a powerful way of promoting local economic development. We identify promising projects and evaluate their potential to provide job opportunities, train and equip locals with new skills and earn profit in a meaningful way.

The Cambodian economy has enjoyed consistent economic growth since the turn of the century largely as a result of expansions in the  manufacturing and agriculture sectors. Increased returns from agriculture between 2004-2011 during the commodity price boom saw one million net jobs created in agriculture (1).  Many locals continue to farm as a form of self subsistence and commerical farming remains a viable and profitable avenue.

Farm Development Stages
(2016 - 2018)

In 2016, we partnered with a local NGO (SCCDO) to finance a small farming business in Takeo province. The purpose of this project was threefold: support the local economy of Takeo, employ and train unemployed locals in farming techniques and secure an independent source of income for SCCDO.
