Pteah Baitong : Acces to energy in Cambodia
Technological innovation to give to the poorest access to energy
In rural environments, 64% of the Cambodian households are not connected to the electrical network and resort to rudimentary equipment: kerosene lamps, old car batteries… Although their purchasing price is low, their cost of use is high. They are also a source of fire and emit toxic fumes. They are therefore far from fulfilling the required work and study conditions to get out of poverty.
Support by Entrepreneurs du Monde
Entrepreneurs du Monde supports Pteah Baitong’s structuration and development on all fronts : legal, operational and financial. The French programme manager is mentored by Asia and Caribbean Energy Programme Manager and by the Financing and Social performance teams. Eventually, Pteah Baitong will become a viable and perennial social enterprise under local law, led by a 100% Cambodian team. However, the best business model to adopt is yet to be determined.
