Based in Cambodia, Penh Lenh is a social enterprise dedicated to empowering skilled women entrepreneurs in Cambodia. Penh Lenh, which means “whole,” helps to provide a high quality of education, vocational training, career opportunities and professional skills, and finance and budget training to these young, resilient women who are part of the organization.
Our Penh Lenh bracelets, earrings, and necklaces are beautifully and carefully handmade by resilient, hardworking Cambodian artisans. They work as a team throughout the production process, using materials such as semi-precious gemstone beads and pendants, handmade gold-plated clasps and chains, and raw silk. The artisan women receive production goals at the beginning of each day and empower one another to reach these goals. After each individual artisan follows a printed template to create the piece and finishes a quality check, another artisan and a product manager conduct additional quality checks. Penh Lenh also provides artisans with training for packaging, so not only is each piece carefully handmade, it is also packaged with care. The strong, empowered women can take pride in the fact that they are creating a beautiful piece of jewelry that is of high quality.
Located in Southeast Asia, Cambodia has a mostly flat terrain with mountains in the southwestern and northern regions. Agriculture includes rice, corn, and vegetables, while popular industries are tourism, rice milling, fishing, wood, construction, and garments. The nation has seen strong economic growth and development in the recent past; from 2000 to 2010, the GDP grew at an average annual rate of more than 8 percent. However, Cambodia is one of the poorest nations within the continent of Asia.
