Phannary trained as a cook with Hagar Catering and then started working for the business. After three years she was promoted as a supervisor.
“My manager trusted me and saw me growing,” she says.
Phannary now supervises 17 staff members, is proud of her work and is supporting all of her children through school.
“Now I have a plan for a better life. Now I can give everything to my children – like other mothers. I never would have believed that I could have what I have now. Before, I lived outside of society. But with my good job, I live my life inside of society.”
