Arjuni International Ltd.

 

 

Arjuni International manufactures human hair extensions from the hair collected from women in Cambodian villages, process it in a factory in Phnom Penh and sell products online, mainly in the United States.

 

Without the presence of the middle buyer, Arjuni is responsible for everything from the manufacturing (collecting hair, blending, processing and sanitizing) to sales, and making it possible to achieve both high quality and reasonable pricing.

 

In May 2012, a New York Times article featured Arjuni. And in August 2013, BBC News introduced their story. Arjuni’s high social profile and business success are in the media.

Social Meaning of the Business   

 

Arjuni creates jobs and promotes self-sustainability of women, who are in a weaker position in the Cambodian society. It actively employs women who were previously involved in human trafficking and prostitution, and helps them cultivate skills. 95% of its employees are women, many of them orphans or victims of human trafficking. By eliminating transactions by intermediary organizations such as religious groups, and purchasing hair directly from the women themselves, Arjuni helps promote the empowerment of Cambodian women.

 

Moreover, Arjuni pledges to donate 10% of their profits to organizations that endeavor to reduce human trafficking and prostitution. It vigorously pursues the activity to support the Cambodian women’s independence.
