The United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and Pact Cambodia announced the launch of In Her Hands, a publication that provides women entrepreneurs in Cambodia with the tools to build a thriving business. By offering practical resources and case studies, In Her Hands acts as a how-to guide that can enable any entrepreneur to address challenges they encounter in their business, such as how to register with the National Social Security fund. The publication is available in Khmer and English and details the essential steps needed to transform a small, informal business into a legitimate enterprise with higher growth potential and legal protection.
“USAID strongly supports women’s economic and civic engagement and access to information is critical to that engagement,” said Ms. Hanh Nguyen, USAID/Cambodia Acting Mission Director. “In Her Hands will provide Cambodia’s female entrepreneurs with the information they need to start and grow their businesses.”
“The magazine supports women entrepreneurs to make their business dreams a reality,” said Ms. Sabine Joukes, Pact Cambodia Country Director. “The magazine features real-life stories from women entrepreneurs about their challenges and offers practical steps to resolve issues to enable women entrepreneurs to take action.”
