Sangi Mah, a fifty-year-old woman in Jawzjan province, has created a wool weaving workshop, providing job opportunities for 170 other women in the province.

On Monday, the Bakhtar News Agency, controlled by the interim government, shared on its social media platform X that a woman has established a wool weaving workshop for Afghan women.

According to the head of the Industry and Commerce Department of Jawzjan province, “Currently, 4,500 women are engaged in 18 industrial sectors in this province, and efforts are underway to further support them.”

Meanwhile, the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP), the United Nations Assistance Mission in Afghanistan (UNAMA), and several other human rights organizations have emphasized the economic empowerment of women in Afghanistan.
