First all-female bakery has been inaugurated in northern Kunduz province of Afghanistan, the United Nations mission in the country said.
The bakery is capable of producing 3,000 breads every hour.
It includes five female workers who prepare not only breads but also cookies, Bolanis and other “delicious Afghan foods,” according to the United Nations Assistance Mission Afghanistan.
The bakery has been built with financial assistance from GIZZ with help from a social and development organization Rah-e-Naween and local businesswomen.
More number of Afghan women are participating in the private sector economy as entrepreneurs, business owners and employees since the fall of Taliban in 2001.
The new bakery is set up in a province which has increased Taliban threat in recent years.
Taliban briefly captured the provincial capital city in 2015.
