The awards ceremony was hosted in the US on October 19 to honor 100 women entrepreneurs from 50 countries in the world.
This is the first time TIAW has selected a Vietnamese women entrepreneur for the award. An entrepreneur receives the award only once in a lifetime.
Pham Thi Huan has been honored for running an effective and well-managed business in the production and distribution of fresh eggs. She has created employment for hundreds of women and has contributed a great deal towards developing the community after overcoming insurmountable difficulties to establish the business.
Ba Huan has also been the first company in Vietnam to invest in an advanced technology to produce fresh eggs to ensure food safety, sponsor farmers to develop breeding techniques, help in breeding hybrid chickens and in distribution of their products.
