Farishta started her business by receiving grant of 33500 AFN from NATEJA AID10380 Project
“My name is Farishta. I was one of the applicant for the grant program funded by the NATEJA IAD10380 project. When I was informed that I am one of the winners of this program, I could not express how happy I was at that time. I was thinking that I could be in a position to support my family as I do not have any male breadwinner in my family. I opened a shop as proposed in my business plan and started my business. My shop is located in the Dasht Sayed area of Markaz district of Bamyan city.
I am earning around 10000 to 12000 AFS per month that could easily fulfill the needs of my family. I am thankful to the People and Government of Italy for supporting such activities and my Government for its implementation.
