Written by: Yama Rahi

Usually, everyone seeks to earn more money and improve his/her economy for a comfortable life but a number of those who have formal jobs are dissatisfied with their salaries. Some of them have found a solution to this issue and they have some business in their free time.

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

Sediqi talks about his activities, “I have a job in of the NGOs in Kabul city and as the salary that I get is not sufficient for the expenses of my family, I decided to open a restaurant but before the opening of the restaurant, I consulted with friends who have experiences in business and then I opened a restaurant with the help of some of my friends.

When I started my work, I faced some problems due to not having the manager, waiters, a person for delivering foods to the customers’ houses but I later I solved these problems by hiring a manager in my restaurant.

When we have two jobs at the same time, it means that we have two incomes at the same time and thus we could solve our economic problems.”

How to increase our sails?

Some businessmen have increased their customers by considering some points in their business. AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Zalgai, the owner of a restaurant in Kabul city.

Zalgai says about his business, “I prepare some special dishes with special methods that cause the increase of my customers.

I prepare kabab from fresh meat and I never use stales foods. I have kept quails and chickens in cages and when customers order kabab of quail or chicken, I slaughter it in front of him/her and this method helped me in increasing my customers.

 There are many restaurants in the different parts of the city that prepare kebabs but customers prefer our restaurant for the quality of the materials and this method caused a positive impact on our business.”
