About Prosperity Candle

Moo Kho & Naw, artisans of Prosperity Candle

Unique design, luxurious fragrances, a sense of purpose

Prosperity Candle is a small group of people who have joined together to create positive change in the world. We come from different walks of life, yet share a common dream: a world where all women have the opportunity to truly thrive.

We are a socially conscious company that delights customers through design, fragrance, and stories that brighten your heart and soul. We believe in contributing to the common good, prioritizing purpose over profit, and striving everyday to help end poverty.

We are a different kind of organization. As a social enterprise, we work at the intersection of business and philanthropy, seeking sustainable market-based solutions to today’s challenges. While we applaud every effort to to help people in need, we believe supporting women’s entrepreneurship and harnessing the immense resources of the global marketplace is the most effective way to achieve long-term impact.

Call us ambitious, even idealistic. But we believe our candles can help inspire a brighter future - homes full of light, gratitude, connection and community. Together, we can change the world . . . one candle, one woman, one community at a time.

The impact you make

Every candle purchased helps provide a living wage for the women of Prosperity Candle, like Moo Kho, Naw and Htoo who have recently resettled from refugee camps and are working to build a brighter future for themselves and their families in the United States.

Five years ago, Moo Kho lived in a refugee camp with her husband and daughter. Unable to further her education or pursue work, her future was limited. And having lost everything, it was difficult to see how life could improve.

Then she had the opportunity to relocate to the U.S. and start anew. A year later Moo Kho joined Prosperity Candle as an apprentice candle-maker. Today she is our Production Manager with a stake in the company, training other women in the art of candle-making.

Your purchases make Moo Kho's story - and many more - possible. A journey from hopelessness to opportunity, from refugee to entrepreneur. From simply surviving to truly thriving.

As we grow, Prosperity Candle will continue to create opportunities for women refugees here in the U.S., and support women's entrepreneurship in places like Haiti. We have seen how one candle can brighten the lives of many. Thank you for making that possible.
