Sandrine Philemon is living proof that women can do it all. The full-time Mother, wife and 3 times over business owner has joined the Bisnis Nakamal, market Haos program to get perspective on her business and is ready to do it all.

“I have an interest in so many things, I wanted to pursue so many things and I do so many things on the side that I want to potentially turn into businesses but right now I have taken a risk with 3 businesses and I am taking a moment
of reflection in joining the Market Haos Program.” Says the innovator.

Mrs Philemon owns 3 business with her husband Fred Philemon. Sandrine shares that the couple took many risks in starting up the 3 certified businesses. The two own Aelan construction, a quality and affordable second hand
clothing shop called Tipis Kona and a Fish supply business that sources not just fresh fish but fish cooked in all delicious forms called Fish.com.

Sandrine manages the businesses while her husband works more on the technical parts of the business, especially the construction business as he is an architect.

She shares that the businesses all stemmed from things she often does with her family. She saw a need for certain services by experiences she had with her family and worked to meet the demand on the market taking multiple
risks with her husband to get the businesses up and running.
