I want to run a matchmaker service

Chea Sopheak, 24, an accounting student at University of Cambodia tells about her business plan – to run a matchmaker service.

“I’ve wanted to start this business since I took a small business management course. The project was to think of an innovative business plan for Cambodia,” Sopheak said. “I came up with the matchmaker idea, and I feel it’s a good start to a real business plan since it’s new to Cambodia’s market.”

“First, it’s the one and only business of its kind in Cambodia,” said Sopheak,

“Second, I think it can lead people to meet their soul mates, whom they might not meet otherwise as both Cambodian men and women are often very busy with their work and do not have time to find their ideal partner.”

How should Sopheak start this business? How might it affect Cambodian culture?
