Women’s Handicraft Expo Opens in Kabul
A permanent expo for women's handmade products and handicrafts opened in Kabul on Wednesday which will help promote the sector for women from around the country.
Organizers of the exhibition have said that by establishing such events, the Afghan women who produce handcrafts will have access to better marketing opportunities.
The event has been organized by the high council of mines and industries and local investors.
Over 40 stalls make up the exhibition.
“We organized the event to help women to contribute and display their products and run their stalls on their own and sell their products,” said event organizer Roya Hafizi.
“At first you face some problems, but gradually you come to know about the things and then you can get acquainted with the bazar,” said investor Fawzia Hamidi.
Those visiting the exhibition have said that holding such events will help to boost local production in the country.
“The stalls I visited are very good and the products are great in terms of quality, and handicrafts were unique,” said Maryam Sadat.
