Local expertise – Cufa staff profile

The Livelihood Enhancement for Economic Development (LEED) project aims to strengthen the economic development of men and women across three provinces in Cambodia through education, vocational training and financial inclusion. It enables women and men, for their first time in their lives, to save and keep money in a secure place and access loans.

Meet Chanthy Chhoeun, a Cufa project officer currently in the field for the LEED project!

Chanthy, please tell us a bit about yourself. “I’m a father of three from Kompong Speu province in Cambodia. I recently started working for Cufa because I like the community development.”

What’s important about the LEED project? “I like the LEED project because it will transfer knowledge to people in community.”

Tell us about technique and skills you use to teach and share knowledge for LEED? “I visit community centres to facilitate group discussion, teach learning through practice, role play, brainstorming, field visits and community mobilisation.” 

Fantastic! When you’re not working for the community, what do you do to relax? “I like to read and watch TV.”

Thank you, Chanthy Chhoeun for sharing your story and your work on the ground for Cufa’s LEED project.
