Project Name: “Initiate and enhance cross-border sales model for Mongolian women entrepreneurs through e-commerce”
Soomin Jun is a specialist on women’s economic empowerment from South Korea. Before pursuing her Master’s degree at Stanford University, Soomin worked with the Asia Foundation field office in Mongolia. In her work, she experienced that Mongolian women entrepreneurs face limitations when it comes to online sales opportunities. Soomin developed a SDG Micro-Project to offer e-commerce training for 20 Mongolian women and made it possible for five women to sell their eco-friendly products via an e-commerce platform to Korean clients. She connected SDG 5 with SDG 4, 8, 10, 11, and 12.
