A number of people have found a way to profit by being innovative in their work and providing facilities to their customers.

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

Ihsan says about his business, “In the beginning, we were making wooden items for home decoration in a workshop. When we lost our more customers, we started online books selling instead of making home decoration items.

We copy the soft of any kind of books to a flash disk and then we sell the softs to our customers.

We only copy the books which do not have copy right.

We also prepare some chapters for school students too.

We pay 20 thousand for the rent of the house each month and our monthly income reaches to 60-70 thousand Afghanis.”

Some people make decorative cement pillars for the gardens.

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

Sayed Aman says, “I sell sapling in the autumn and spring but in other season I had no job. So, I started to sell decorative concrete pillars for gardens.

We are 3 shareholders. We hired a person who is famous in making decorative pillars.

We pay 500 Afghanis daily wage to the man who makes pillars and 300 Afghanis wage to his pupils.

We also make blocks for houses’ walls and for well. We benefit 15 Afghanis in each 2 meters pillar.

The pillars are sold most in the autumn and spring and in other seasons of the year; we sell block, and saplings. Our income reaches 120 thousand Afghanis in a year from selling pillars.
