Vong Saven makes jewellery from recycled paper, employing local women from displaced communities to.  Since graduating from the SHE Incubator Program she has increased her business revenue, and even started a second business selling juice. She has been able to provide more jobs for home-based jobs for unemployed women, and has even taught her husband what she learned to help him start his own business too! 

Thavry has a pig farm in Siem Reap, which she started with her husband several years ago. After graduating from the Incubator Program she increased her income and reinvested this back into the business, doubling the size of her farm's infrastructure. This has allowed her to breed a much higher number of pigs, increasing her output (and therefore her revenue) significantly. Thavry says that the program helped her to significantly increase her self-confidence, and she now feels like she has much more power to make financial decisions, both in her family and her business,
