Reducing poverty

Cambolac is a name you'll hear more and more in the near future. They are seeking to reduce poverty by using a social business model to aid Siem Reap's poorer communities to help themselves. They plan to create 100 jobs by producing locally and selling locally. So what are they selling? Black lacquer boxes with pictures of Angkor scenes in lacquer on the top. It's a handicraft enterprise. Some of what is sold at Angkor today isn't made locally. Cambolac is changing that. Keep your eyes open for these boxes next time you are in Siem Reap. Find out more @ cambolac.
