Head of Finance & Human Resources
Originally from the big city of Manila, Philippines, Helen was drawn to work for Ock Pop Tok because of its focus on women’s empowerment. Helen started working here in 2014 and now leads the entire Finance and Accounting team. She studied and worked in the finance industry for 15 years prior to this job. She is proud to work for a company that supports ethically sourced textile production but also contributes to the economic livelihood of many families and women across Laos. She recommends taking the half-day weaving class, as it “really makes you appreciate the effort and time it takes to finish one product.” Helen’s bubbly personality and maternal instincts are felt across the whole office. If she’s not sorting all the bills and payments here, you will find Helen dancing with her dance group, reading a good book or cooking up a storm in the kitchen!
