Women Start New Lives and Businesses with Help from UNDP
Women using equipment provided by UNDP to produce pickles, jams, vermicelli, preserves and spaghetti.
UNDP provided this women’s cooperative in Mazar-e-Sharif with equipment, training and help to access new markets. Now the women are using their savings to buy land and build a new production facility that will hugely increase output.
Generous funding from the Republic of Korea has allowed UNDP to support nearly 1,000 female entrepreneurs across Afghanistan since 2013.
