Kim Meng Cheng

She is 18 years old, lives in Kratié province, over 100 miles from Phnom Penh. Before, her brother cousin has asked her to work for garment factory in Phnom Penhbut it was very difficult to find job here. In 1999 she stopped her study in 6th grade to help her parent as a farmer.

After that, she came back to Phnom Penh to find a job, in November 2003 she met our company’s staff and she was asked to train. After 2 months of training she could earn some money like in Jan 04 only 15$ to start, after that $32, and more as she improves.

She said it is interesting job, she will try to become a good maker, she will earn more money like the best makers and it is the freedom at work that she appreciates. Anyway she can send some money to support her family when before she never was able to earn enough money for herself.
