Enhancing her opportunities through LEED: Saren Kon

Last month we shared some insight into Cufa’s Livelihood Enhancement for Economic Development (LEED) in Cambodia, by meeting one of the LEED project officers. Through skills development training in areas such business, agriculture and life skills, participants create an increased prospect to enhance income opportunities and enabling safe banking, and access to affordable loan opportunities.

Today, we meet LEED participant, Saren Kon.
