 Most people are busy only with their jobs such as teaching, carpentry, car repairing, and others. But those who have learned some skills too, are most successful in improving their families’ economy.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Basir Ahmad Nazari, a resident of Maidan-Wardak province.

Nazari talks about his business, “I am a teacher. One day when I went home from school, my mother complained of her tiredness of shaking yogurt in a special pot. I promised to make an automatic machine for this purpose. I started my work and it took about 15 days that I made an electric churn for making butter.

I spend about 2000 Afghanis for each churn and I sell it for 3000 Afghanis. I can make two churns daily. I publish the video of my products on Facebook pages and social media groups.

My more customers are the residents of Maidan-Wardak, Paktia, and Logar provinces and some customers take them into Pakistan too.”

Dish Wash Liquid:

Markets are always in positions to get profit but sometimes businessmen and shopkeepers not only do not make a profit, they also suffer loss, and even lose their capital.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Muhammad Fahim Halimi, a resident of Kabul city.

Halimi says about his activities. “I had a clothing shop for 17 years and it had a good profit. Later, the number of my customers decreased and I faced loss. later I changed the clothing shop to dish wash liquid store. At that time I was importing dish wash liquid from abroad and later I started to produce the liquid inside the country. As I did not have the experience of producing dish wash liquid, I faced some problems. I spent about 2 months to produce one type of liquid but later I solved that issue.

Now I get convenient profit from my business. I built a nice house, bought a car, sent one of my brother for education to abroad and I pay his study fee and I also arranged marriage for my other brother.”
