Taking Benefit from others’ Skills

         Written by: Aqsa Sediqi

The Internet is a part of today's technology that humans use throughout the world to get information and establish relationships with their counterparts.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to a woman who uses the internet for her economic activities.

says:  “I had a job at one of the offices in Kabul city, and when they suspended me from the job, I tried to find a job for me. I was searching job vacancy sites that I faced a video that was making home decoration objects and learned from it and I also started to make such objects at home.  I use glass bottles, cold drinks cans and used dishes. I make different decoration items and I spend 30-100 Afghanis on each item and sell it up to 500 Afghanis and I am satisfied with my work.”

Taking benefit from the other's skills:

Many Afghan women are capable to embroider a variety of dresses with different designs but they are not able to find the market for their goods. Some other people take benefit of the capacities and arts of these women. They find markets for the goods provided by these women, and, on the other hand, they provide the opportunity for themselves to earn income.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to a shopkeeper in Kandahar province.

He says: “I sell embroidered shirts, shawls, and kerchiefs which some poor women and widows prepare them at their homes. About 43 women are embroidering the mentioned pieces and they are the resident of Kandahar, Helmand and Mosa Qala. We get the order from our customers and then we prepare raw materials and our brokers give the orders and raw materials which we prepare for the dresses to the women at their homes and after they prepare the items, and our brokers collect them. We pay 200 Afghanis for each order to the brokers and the women should prepare the orders in 3 months and some orders take one-year time too. We get 500-1000 Afghanis net benefit from the selling of each piece.
