A Canberra cleaning company started by Karen refugees who were ripped off by their previous employer is set to expand after signing a deal with accommodation giant Airbnb. 

Under the partnership, Airbnb will fund a business development manager for Harmony Community Cleaning and recommend hosts use the ethical enterprise.

It's a big boost for the cooperative enterprise comprised of about 40 Karen refugees who fled Myanmar and Thailand before settling in Canberra.
