Female vendors increasing in Kabul roads
 Due to economic constraints, beside man, women have also resorted to vendoring to support their families and are proud of their occupation.
In an interview with The Kabul Times reporter, Rahima a mother of three children who sells toys on the road, said since over 20 years I have been a widow. I had four children two girls, two sons. One of my sons who was 18 and an ANA soldier, was martyred. My husband was working in the Central Silo he was killed during the factional fighting. Now I work to support my orphan children. I want my children to be educated.
She added, before it was involved in tailoring and sometimes I had to work in people homes. But now it supply toys and sell them on the streets to bring bread to my children.
Rahima expects the government to pay her husband’s pension to her because he was killed in his work place.
At the same time, Khatera another adult daughter of her family who sells second hand clothes with her father, said I am the elder child of our family, student of 10th grade of a Kabul school. Since my father is very sick and is not able to work alone, so I work with him as a vendor. Although this is a boring job but I am satisfy to earn money to my family.
She added, due to economic constraints, illness of my mother, I had to resort to this job and through this I supply house rent and my siblings expenditures.
Zeba another lady who sells Bolani, said I am proud of my business. I supply potatoes, flour etc and make 50-100 Bolani every day and sell them at Temor Shahi road and I make good benefit. I lost my parents and elder brother during the devastating conflicts and supply now my sister and two brothers. We are grateful to have a poor shelter. We are proud of our business. We don’t want to stretch hand to others. I use Borqa during selling Bolani in order not to be recognized by relatioves, friends etc.
