Univen Carpintaria began its journey as a furniture store in 2004, designing and building a variety of furniture for the local market in Dili, Timor-Leste. Responding to demand in the local community Univen Carpintaria began producing wooden coffins in 2007, and since 2008 has moved completely into this area of business. 

Their vision is to be a professional company who are able to provide a high quality of service to their clients while also preserving and upholding their dignity at the end of life. 

Access to end of life care and quality funeral services is limited in Timor-Leste at this time. Univen Carpintaria is looking to improve the service they currently provide to clients within the capital Dili, while also expanding beyond Dili so that other communities may have greater access to quality funeral services.
