Editor’s note: Welcome to Part 3 of the 2013 AWWP Oral Stories Project: Challenges Facing Women in Business.
In this section you will find four oral interviews conducted with four Afghan women who are running home businesses. And, “The Woman Who Changed Herat’s Silk Industry,” a story about the work of Sadiqa Tamasoki in Herat.
All of the work here was recorded, transcribed, and translated into English by our writers in Afghanistan and then edited for publication.
