Mrs Tem

Province: Kom Pong Thom
Age: 34
Family: Married with 1 child

Mrs. Tem is 34 and she has been working with Fikay through one of our production partners, Khmer Life for 4 years as a producer. Mrs Tem spent 6 years of her life as a farmer but after a severe drought she and her two brothers travelled to the city to work in a garment factory. Tem would live in a room only 2m by 3m for 3-4 months at a time and would often work 14-16 hours a day. She says her life was void and empty…. Meaningless.

Tem now lives in Song Rong Village near Kom Pong Thom and works at Khmer Life’s workshop. Tem says making Fikay bags has given her a new lease of life. She is now married and has one 4 year-old child. This year he will go to the kindergarten that buying Fikay products helps fund. The future looks bright for Mrs Tem and her family.
