Right Place and Time

  Written by: Yama Rahi

Having good materials with good quality and price could be effective in business, but paying attention to some other points could also be useful. AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Nik Muhammad Sultani, a resident of Kabul city about this issue.

 Sultani says about his business, “For the past five years, I have been selling dairy products in places that I think are good for sale at specific times.

I have a contract with some livestock owners and I buy cream, yogurt, cheese, milk, eggs, butter, etc. from them and then I sell them to the customers I have in certain places and at certain times.

I have made a small shop at the back of my vehicle and I sell the mentioned items as a mobile seller.

I sell about 150-200 eggs, more than 7 kilograms cheese, and 7 kilograms cream daily. I sell cheese, cream, butter, and eggs in the morning and I sell the rest of the materials at other times of the day.

As most of my sales are in residential areas, I distributed my customer cards behind the apartments’ doors.”

New Skills:

Some people have learned new skills and they could take benefit from their skills.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Sayed Sajad Hashimi, a resident of Kabul city about the reason for his success in business.

Hashimi says, “I have a small factory and I produce home and office decorative materials like pen and IPad stands, wooden chandeliers, candy pots and other decorative materials from iron, wood, and plastic.

I have learned this skill when I was in India and when I came back to Afghanistan, I took the benefit of my skill and started the same business here in Kabul city.

I produce most of the materials according to the order of my customers and my monthly income reaches 50 thousand Afghanis.”
