1. A Pioneer Group
Financière B'lao is driven by its pro-activeness, independence, and passion for challenges, far from stereotypes
- Financière B'lao (was the first to hold a foreign investment license in Vietnam in 1988 when the country’s economy slowly began opening up. SCAVI, Financière B'lao’s wholly-owned subsidiary, started off with an initial capital investment of 20,000 USD.
- Financière B'lao is currently a French company with the largest number of members: 15,000 are working in Vietnam. Financière B'lao is in the Top 7 of the global lingerie outsourcing industry, impacting largely on the global industry shift.
- SCAVI was the first foreign company to invest in the Laotian lingerie industry in 2003.
- SCAVI was the first company in its industry to start investing in Hue, in the center of Vietnam, in 2005. Nowadays, SCAVI HUE is proud to have over 6,000 members, led by a management board coming entirely from the region.

3. A Group that always reaches out beyond
Being a pioneer and responsible combines in this ultimate core value: "Break the walls, reach beyond the limits"
- “Break down the walls within yourself - reach out beyond and transcend yourself”
Rely on your will, inner courage, and tenacity to reach out beyond, in a constant effort to structure your thinking, train your memory and commit fully to appropriate actions.
Strive to have a freer, more independent mindset by being creative, curious, and critical. Avoid conformity and being stuck in the sterile status quo; instead, put yourself at risk.
- “Break down the walls with others”
More than being simply open to others, approach differences with a genuine interest for your benefit and theirs, grow richer and richer with what you discover and share.
Consider the community as your own home- and care for everybody.
Keep the fire by being exemplary every day.
