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.

Agriculture in Cambodia

The Cambodian economy has enjoyed consistent economic growth since the turn of the century, largely as a result of growth in garment manufacturing and agriculture. 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 commercial farming remains a viable and profitable venture. 

Takeo Farm Project

In 2016, we partnered with a local NGO (SCCDO) to finance a small farming business in the Takeo province. The purpose of this project was threefold:

  1. Support the local economy of Takeo.

  2. Employ and train locals in farming techniques.

  3. Secure an independent source of income for SCCDO. 

Six years later, it's a self-sufficient business, providing food to SCCDO, as well as locals in the Takeo province.
