Anandi Mini Factories World Wide
Each Anandi pad is manufactured in a woman-supervised and woman-employed mini-factory. This provides an opportunity for local women to become employed, learn entrepreneurial and marketing skills, and even assume management roles within their own community.
Each mini factory is easy to operate and easy to maintain. With basic training, women can produce superior quality Anandi pads and manage their own factories with little support. Additionally, each mini factory requires minimal electricity to operate and has a built in quality standard.
Aakar Innovations is constantly doing R&D to further improve the quality of the machines as well as the products. The components in our mini-factory run on simple technology but produce sanitary napkins as comfortable and effective as competitive products. This is the result of extensive R&D, both in technology and raw materials, and drawing on our experience working with similar technology in the same challenging environment. The novelty of this technology lies in integration of well-known equipment and processes with our own technological advancements. This dramatically cuts down production costs without compromising quality, therefore providing a greater profit margin that is returned to workers.
The Anandi production unit model is considered a superior mini-factory in the cottage industry.
