Paving the Way for Economic Freedom
Each day that Benazir Yakta opens her Kabul-based business she is conscious of the responsibility she carries as a business owner and employer. Benazir long dreamed of starting her own business venture to express her entrepreneurial talent and provide a source of income for Afghan women. Benazir Yakta Trading Company, which exports an assortment of Afghan fruit and nuts, is the fulfillment of that dream and her unwavering determination to succeed. Today the company employs 105 persons, of which 100 are women. Receiving a recent Islamic financing from the ADF to purchase produce from Afghan farmers was yet another milestone for this proud business owner.
