Wooden Curtains

 Written by: Yama Rahi

In recent decades, a large number of Afghans have migrated to different countries. Some of them learn a profession or a skill, and when they come back to the country, they make a good income from it. AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Obaidullah Muhammadi, a resident of Kabul city.

Muhammadi says about his business, “I make decorative wooden curtains, wooden boxes, wooden confectionery pots, and other items. I have learned this skill during my immigration to Iran, and when I came back to Afghanistan, I took the benefit of this skill.

Before the spreading of coronavirus, I had a good income but    when the government announced quarantine, I lost some of my customers. My more customers are families who want to decorate their rooms with these items.”

Extra Materials Usage:

Sometimes we think that some materials are useless and we throw them away but AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Assadullah, a resident of Kabul city who takes the benefit of extra materials.

Assadullah says about his business, “I am a carpenter and I also make birds’ nests, small decorative houses, tables, and chairs for children from extra woods and my small sun sells them in the bazaar. Before we were using extra woods of my carpentry shop as firewood. One day, my small sun made a house from extra woods and one of my customers liked it. I decided to make more small houses and some other things from extra woods and I get about 3000-4000 Afghanis benefit from these items monthly.”
