Business Projects

One of the ways in which Starfish helps its clients to achieve independence and financial stability is by providing the technical and financial assistance necessary to start local businesses. Starfish’s outreach staff have many years of experience working closely with clients in the community, developing business ideas and helping to implement them. Many factors are taken into consideration when working on small business projects, including the future sustainability of the initiative, the possible client contribution to the project, the skills and training necessary to implement and run the business, as well as community feedback regarding the proposed business.

In addition to the direct benefit of the new business on the client, the community of Sihanoukville also profits from these sustainable local initiatives which help to increase the self-sufficiency and raise the standard of living of its citizens.
