||This journal article is the result of a paper presentation at the National Population Conference 2021 (PERKKS 21) on 16-17 November 2021. It is jointly organized by the National Population and Family Development Board (LPPKN), United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) Malaysia, Faculty of Business and Economics, Universiti Malaya (UM) in collaboration with WMIT Group Sdn Bhd.
||The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set Goal-1 to end poverty in all its forms everywhere. However, menstrual poverty still happens to teenage girls and women from the past until now. It is not easy for them to get or buy menstrual products due to financial constraints. Based on a focus group discussion research session, the main objective of the study is to review the social entrepreneurship strategies carried out by three social entrepreneurship organizations – BunPad, KotMe and AntPower (pseudonym of the study) in dealing with the issue of menstrual poverty among underprivileged women.
