Expanding Business

 Written by: Hasamddin Hamdard

Economic experts believe that there should be continuous changes in the products to find more customers. But in Afghanistan, few people bring changes in their products, and these changes are caused an increase in the number of customers.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Abdul Qahar, a resident of Kabul city, who produces cages for birds.

Abdul Qahar talks about his business, “I make different types of cages for birds in different sizes. Other cage makers use ordinary wood for making cages but I use Kabab sticks and bramble wood for this purpose and I apply varnish to the cages to prevent damage due to rain and water. The birds feel free in these kinds of cages because these cages are enough large and wide.

I made the first cage in 3 days but now I can make 2 cages daily. The prices vary due to the size of the cages. If I spend 500 Afghanis on a cage, I sell it for 1500 Afghanis.

I use social media for introducing my products and a large of people are my customers.”

Making Furniture:

Several craftsmen are not satisfied with their business due to facing economic problems but some of them have found a solution to this issue.

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

Darwish talks about his business, “We produce furniture like couches, benches, and tables but after the spreading of coronavirus and applying quarantine, we faced economic crises but soon we found a solution to this issue.

 Before we did not have time to repair and cover used couches but now we do it. After starting the repair and covering used couches, our incomes increased two times more than before and now our economic problems are solved.
We use social media to introduce our productions.”
