Rachel is the founder of matcha 5 (now ACTSmarket.com), an online marketplace exclusive to the rural and underprivileged artists and to bridge the gap between artisans in rural areas and the global consumer economy by giving them opportunities for their products to be on the market.

Rachel was inspired on her trip to Tala Philippines, where she saw a group of women who were relatives of lepers making exquisite and unique reversible dolls and due to the lack of market access, there was no demand for the dolls. When Rachel graduated from university, she worked in the corporate world to acquire skills and experiences for 4 years to equip her with her future aspiration of helping to lift poverty through sustainable businesses.
