While I am in Phnom Penh, Enfants du Mekong has asked me to help out and facilitate a training on how to set up a business for Year 2 and Year 3 students. With the support of Samuel, a volunteer who worked several years in marketing and finance, the students have already started working on their business idea and business plan.
I focus on the financial part of their business plan and we all work hard on computer spreadsheets to forecast the income statement, and cash needs of their budding businesses. Some students have done thorough researches on their potential market and customers and even started saving money to start their project as soon as they graduate.
