Women Showcase Products,  Handicrafts in Kabul Exhibition

KABUL - The women who came from five provinces to attend the exhibition said they see it as an opportunity to improve their business.
Women from rural areas put on a display of their handicrafts and home-made products at an exhibition in Kabul on Saturday.
The products displayed at the exhibition included agricultural products, dresses, shoes and handicrafts made by women in villages of Balkh, Nangarhar, Parwan, Herat and Bamiyan provinces.
“The exhibition has 120 booths and the women from five provinces have been invited to showcase their products. Our goal is to develop business among women investor’s particularly in rural areas,” said Abdul WafiNayebzai, head of the media office of the national program on rural development.
The women who participated in the exhibition said they see it as a good chance to introduce their products and handicrafts to the people.
“This exhibition was effective for us. I have a shop in Herat where I have few customers, but here I have earned up to 40,000 AFs in a day,” SediqaTamasuki, a woman investor, said.
The women said their business will improve well if they have a market for their products.
“We cannot have good revenue from selling our products in Balkh (province) but such exhibitions will be a good opportunity to gain more customers,” said Zahra, an investor. (Tolo news)
