Women Entrepreneurs Act: Srey Phallathavy
Srey Phallathavy runs her own business in Cambodia making water hyacinth products. As a young woman entrepreneur in Cambodia, she has faced and overcome many challenges to run a successful business. Funded by USAID, Pact's WE Act project is working to break down the social, systemic barriers that impede young women entrepreneurs. Working in the urban areas of Phnom Penh and Siem Reap, the five-year project is helping young women entrepreneurs gain the knowledge and resources they need to be business and civic leaders. In addition to entrepreneurs themselves, WE Act partners with civil society organizations, the private sector, business associations and government institutions. Video by Brian Clark/Pact.
