Mrs. Men has contributed immensely to society and ultimately to the development of the nation immediately following the genocidal regime. From 1982 to 1989, she started her public career at the Municipality of Phnom Penh in various roles from accountant to inspector. Her role as accountant and her duty as a civil servant enabled her to see to the rebuilding of the Capital. The lack of (human) resources and proper support channels at the time were adverse to any and all entities that had hoped to put the pieces of the city and country back together. Notably, Mrs. Men’s designation as Inspector of the Capital’s various district markets allowed her to create special bonds, rapports, and a sense of togetherness with people from all walks of life — the farmers supplying the markets, the vendors selling the goods including those who were late with rent for their stalls, the security guards and parking tenants. Afterall, the markets were the core of a developing society — a place that embodied peace, free movement and where the population could interact. This designation conceived relationships that empowered Mrs. Men’s people-to-people skills — an affirmation of her nature in constantly nurturing others.
