VIETNAM & CAMBODIA: Community Development and Microcredit Program

Mekong Plus was founded in 1994 to assist those who live in poor, rural areas of Cambodia and Southern Vietnam—with a priority to work with the poorest of the poor (income of around 100 dollars/year).

Creating low cost, long-term solutions to poverty alleviation with a focus on sustainable development, these projects have great potential to achieve powerful social change in the communities they serve. Mekong Plus’ programs include microcredit, agriculture extension, training of village technicians, education and health, and generation of employment. Overall, the programs impact more than 150,000 people every year.
