Some people do not sign contract when they have dealing with others and they only promise with each other. Sometimes these promises cause problems to both side.

AEPO’s writer/producer had a trip to Nangarhar province and there she has talked to Abdullah Arsala, the owner of a perfume factory in Jalalabad city.

Arsala talks about his business, “I collect orange and rose blossoms from about 800 gardeners in different districts of Nangarhar province.

At the beginning we had not signed any contract among the gardeners and us. Once one of the gardeners had quarrel with his brother and his brother had pull out all the rose plants from his land and we faced loss.

Later we prepared official contracts. In the contract, it’s written that the gardeners have to take care of their garden blossoms and sell them to us. They should not use fertilizer in the fields and keep blossoms from reach of cattle and flocks and we pay them the price of blossoms daily and we also should give 770 kilograms wheat yearly to them.

Once, a flack of sheep had eaten one of the gardens’ rose blossoms. We had given him 770 Kilogram wheat and we showed the contract to him and the owner of the garden did ask for the price of the blossoms.”
