"Pteah Baitong changed our lives !"

Thanks to Pteah Baitong, Entrepreneurs du Monde’s energy access program in Cambodia, Ang Khunthea can access energy. She testifies!

“I have 4 brothers and 2 sisters, so I had to leave school at the end of primary school. This was a great disappointment to me and to my teacher because I was their best pupil. I got married in 2008 and worked for in a factory for 3 years for $60 a month. That’s really not much! Now, I have my own business and it’s going very well because I’m hard-working, friendly and have good business sense.

Pteah Baitong connected us to a mini solar grid, and it changed our lives! First of all, on a personal level because we have better living conditions and we feel safer. Secondly, on a professional level because it powers a TV and a fridge. The TV is what attracts the customers who buy my cold drinks!

I used to use a small individual solar kit that generated much less light and I had to change the battery every year. Since I’ve been connected to the mini grid, I don’t need to buy ice to refresh the drinks anymore and I sell a lot more too. As a result, my profit has increased by 40%, or more than $50 a month! This means I no longer live ‘day-to-day’, I can now make plans for my business and family.”

By participating in our campaign you allow us to equip more families like the one in Ang Khunthea!
