Social Business

Sustainable Green Fuel Enterprise was initiated by the NGOs GERES Cambodia and PSE (Pour un Sourire d’Enfant) through a joint project:. PSE added its social commitment to GERES’s environmental and technical expertise. The goal of SGFE as a real social business is to provide long-term employment to its workers so that they can get a regular, secure and fair income. Thus, the economic viability of the business is crucial, and profits are to be shared among the stakeholders and employees, and reinvested in the company’s development.

Currently, SGFE employs 16 people who used to work as waste pickers on Phnom Penh’s municipal landfill. These people come from the impoverished communities supported by PSE, and thanks to their new job in SGFE, they can now send their children to school and enjoy a secure and stable income in a proper working environment.

Ouy Sreymao worked on Phnom Penh’s dumpsite for years. She is now 31 and, since the beginning of 2010, she has a secure job in the SGFE factory. She has 3 sons who are now able to go to school, and the living conditions of her family have improved since she joined the team. With the training and job skills SGFE has provided her, Sreymao is working hard to provide for her family, and hopes to have enough money that her husband will be able to stop working as a waste picker also.
