Arjuni International, Inc. : Company Overview
Arjuni International Ltd. was founded by Janice Wilson in February 2009. It is a social enterprise which manufactures human hair extensions and operates online sales in Cambodia. It currently
employs 78 people.
Arjuni collects hair from village women, manufactures them into hair extensions at the factory in Phnom Penh and sell the products online to customers in the U.S. A. and Europe. Blessed with the abundance of naturally beautiful hair of Cambodian women, the process from manufacturing (collection, blending, processing and sanitization of hair), to online sales have been managed coherently, and as a result, enabling Arjuni’s success in providing high quality products which can meet the demanding standards of the developed market.
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 profit to organizations that endeavor to reduce human trafficking and prostitution. It vigorously pursues the activity to support the Cambodian women’s independence.
