We're delighted to welcome Mr Ry (pictured above) to our team on the ground. We've recently employed 32-year-old Mr Ry to work in a support role for the microfranchisees. We realised that the villagers need more assistance to successfully raise their chickens, so Mr Ry will provide training and support to help the microfranchisees keep their chickens healthy along with managing chicken feed and transporting stock.
Mr Ry is very well-suited to the role with past experience as an NGO community facilitator. He has a Bachelor's degree in agronomy from Cambodia's National School of Agriculture and has undertaken leadership, communication and HR management training through Oxfam. He's even completed training in value-chain analysis so his skills will be invaluable to help us involve the ultra-poor in the poultry value-chain.

We founded Catalyst Microfranchising after living in South East Asia and seeing first-hand the daily struggle the ultra poor face in meeting their basic needs.
