“Blessed are all who fear the Lord, who walk in obedience to him. You will eat the fruit of your labor; blessings and prosperity will be yours. Your wife will be like a fruitful vine within your house; your children will be like olive shoots around your table. Yes, this will be the blessing for the man who fears the Lord.” (Psalm 128:1-4)
Borisoth: a Missional Business in Phnom Penh, Cambodia
On the busy streets of Phnom Penh, Cambodia an eye-catching, sleek organic foods store and cafe welcomes locals, students, and travelers. Its elegant interior attracts those with purchasing power and fuels a company that does more than just serving coffee, teas, and organic fruits.
Borisoth, a division of the Hesed Agricultural Co., Ltd, is an implementing member of SfK in Cambodia. It specializes in aggregating and selling organic food items produced by various suppliers. Its initial focus still remains on facilitating sales of products made by Christian communities established by missionaries.
