When I saw that noodles have good market than other items, and I had some money, I bought a noodle machine and borrowed an amount from one of my friends, and started to produce noodles three years ago. I sell each package of noodles for 3 Afghanis and I get half of an Afghani benefit in each package and the wholesalers sell it for 4 and a half Afghanis and the shopkeepers sell it for 5 Afghanis. more customers come to our factory for purchasing noodles and we also distribute our products in Kapisa, Parwan and Panjshir provinces.”

Collective work has a good effect on the family economy. AEPO’s writer/producer had a trip to Faizabad city, Badakhshan province and there he has talked to Simeen Karimi.

Simeen says about her business, “As I saw that most of the hotels separated a part of the hotel by a curtain for ladies but most families do not let their women go to a hotel that all the staffs are men. Then I shared the issue with my family and I opened a hotel. A daughter of my father-in-law’s; my sisters, and I work together in this hotel.

I showed the community that women can play a good role in their self-sufficiency and their family economy, and they can convenience their family members to have economic activity. Our customers are university students, girls, ladies, and families.”
