Collecting Milk

  Written by: Hasamuddin Hamdard

Some Afghan farmers are not happy with their income and they could not solve their daily problems but some others found a solution to this issue.

AEPO’s writer/producer has talked to Habibullah, a resident of Qala-e-Naw, Qalandar Khail, Bagram district, Parwan province.

Habibullah says: “I am a farmer and a gardener. As I had economic problems, I started to work with a milk company and now I collect milk from cow owners of 17 villages and sell it to the mentioned company.

 I buy each kg milk for 22-23 Afghanis and then I sell it for 26-27 Afghanis per kg. My daily income reaches up 400-600 Afghanis and could solve my home economic problems.”

Children Park:

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

Faisal says: “I considered that the children of our area need a playground, so I rented a piece of land and I pay 35 thousand Afghanis monthly for the landowner and I made a playground for the children. I spent about 1500000 in this park. There are no special conditions for children to enter the park, they only have to pay 100 Afghanis for the entry ticket and they could use all playing equipment and other facilities in the park. Kids’ parents do not pay during entering the park and we have provided facilities for the parents too. Our daily incomes reach up to 7000 Afghanis and in it increases on Fridays and public holidays.  About 10 persons are busy in work with us and we pay them monthly salary.”
