Physical Problems and Business

 Written by: Husamuddin Hamdard

When we go around the big cities of Afghanistan, we might face some beggars but all poor people are not beggars. Some poor and disabled people also could find a job and solve their economic problems.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Ameen Faizi, a resident of Kabul city who has physical problems.

Faizy says: “I was porter in Kabul city wholesale market. One day a bundle of cartons dropped on my back and broke my waste and later, I paralyzed from my both legs.

When I went to a physical rehabilitation center, I studied school there and later I got 15 thousand Afghanis loans from that center and I bought a kart and some items and started to sell them on the kart. Later I opened a grocery shop. My brother helps me in my shop and now my capital reaches about 150 thousand Afghanis. I am also a member of the Afghan Red Crescent Basketball team and I play from my wheelchair.”

Better Management:

All businessmen need good management otherwise they might fail.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Abdul Qudos, the owner of machinery in Kabul city.

Abdul Qudos says: “we have installed the machinery about 18 years ago which produces cement blocks and pipes.

We, three brothers, are working together in our company and we have arranged our daily works according to our procedure. During working days, about 100 employees are busy at work but during the winter, about 20-25 workers and employees are working with us. We control and manage our daily works and we check our machinery and every day and pay special attention to the cleanliness of the machineries after the end of the work.

At the beginning, I had nothing but now I am the owner of a car and a private house and my economic condition is better than before.”
