Marketplace for Afghan women to be built in Kabul city

ghazni handicraftsThe Kabul Municipality has undertaken the plan for constructing a marketplace for Afghan women in Kabul city.

The purpose of the marketplace is to enable Afghan women to promote and expand their businesses and become financially self-sufficient.

Funded by Kabul Municipality, the market is planned to be built near the Shahrara region.

“The shops in the market will be rent out to women only , where they will sell their handicraft products. Having a market will enable customers, mainly customers coming from abroad, to easily find Afghan handicrafts,” said Kabul Mayor Mohammad Younus Nawandish.

Mr. Nawandish added that the Ministry of Women Affairs will decide over the products that can be sold in the market.

    If women are going to promote their skills and handicraft, then they should be trusted to choose for themselves what they want to sell rather than being told by the “Ministry for Women” what to sell. If we believe in market forces i.e. supply and demand to have a real market, then women should be supported to decide what they want to produce for the market. Supporting women to establish themselves financially independent would be a real contribution to developing the financial health of the family and that of the country at large.
