Working with Poor Facilities

  Written by: Yama Rahi

Some people in Afghanistan who do not have a job and not have enough money, they also could get a convenient income from their small amount of money.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Ahmad, a resident of Kabul city.

 Ahmad talks about his work, “I am a butcher but as it needs more money to open a butcher shop and I had learned sambosa (a special food) in Uzbekistan, when I came back to my country, I started to cook sambosa. I paid about 15000 Afghanis for buying a kart, gas balloon and an oven. I prepare sambosa from beef, onion, dough, coriander and some spices and I cook them in the oven. I sell about 250 sambosas daily and I get 2 Afghanis benefit from each sambosa.”

Advertising on Social media:

Some businessmen have taken into account some tips that have a significant impact on their sales.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Shoaib Sediqi, a resident of Kabul city.

Sediqi says, “I have opened kids' dress and electric equipment shop about three years ago. At the beginning, we had been publishing the pictures of the dresses and other items in the shop on social media. Some customers ask questions about some items and we have to hire a person to reply to our customers. To solve this issue, we started to prepare a short video and then publish it on social media. Publishing these small videos caused us to increase our customers by about 30% and now we have more income too.”
